There/Here began in Richmond, Virginia as a research project conceptualized and curated by then student Tyler King. He selected, visited, and documented forty vacant buildings in Downtown Richmond, and produced the first of its kind online inventory of the past uses and present state of each historical site. NTHNG MSSNG is a complimentary catalogue of the project where King writes, “While vacant buildings are often viewed as a latent redevelopment opportunities, NTHNG MSSNG offers a moment to pause, and consider the life of these buildings, independent from how they could perform economically—or how they once performed economically.” Invited to launch a similar project in his hometown of Abingdon, Virginia, King will use the historical survey records recently labeled The Coletti Papers, as they were a donation to the William King Museum by Vivian Coletti, and organize an exhibition with a similar lens, here applied to the historic architecture of Washington County, Virginia. Tyler King received a Bachelor of Science in Urban and Regional Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond. He returned from Germany late in 2013 after studying at Bauhaus-University Weimar.
