Episode 8: Castles and Fairy-tales
There is something about Germanic fairy-tales that is captivating and when told right, everyone creates a similar mental picture. A castle in a far off land, a tower and a princess that is always in need of saving. The funny thing with fairy tales is that they are always some what grounded in reality. Our history as humans has been very short. We have lived long enough to put up stone structures and to watch our creations whether and die. It’s a special thing, and a lot like the buildings of antiquity, recent structures do face the same fate as their ancestors. It’s a balance, and a lot like the tales we tell, these buildings have an almost fairy-tale like quality to them.
