the Code of Hammurabi specified a death penalty for builders, or masons, whose buildings fell on the inhabitants. (wikipedia)

If a poorly built house causes the death of a son of the owner of the house, then the son of the builder is put to death. (Sect. 230)

if this was the case in detroit, i don't think an architect would be alive or practicing today.

i think my research has to go deeper into something else besides the surface fabric of detroit. i'm currently seeking paper guilds and researching "warraqeens."

i want to take an elective in print-making next semester.
