"Façadism shows an archive, on a reduced scale, of historical facades. The small pewter facades refer to souvenirs that we can buy in every souvenir shop of a historic city. Façadism stands for preserving the facade of a building, while the underlying part is completely is being replaced by new construction. The decomposition between the façade and the interior is characteristic. Due to the massive application of this phenomenon, the city is in danger of 'disneyficating'.
