What structures would terminate the architectural prominence of historical encasement?

Puffing history terminally.

A pink mist is a film of two subjects displaced by an interruption but conjoined by shared sensations becoming extra-material: a composition of substance that lacks form but creates a dual language able to be formed.

A dream of a pink mist disconnected from its origin, as its origin flickers, would terminated the lush, cushion-like prominence of a lived life solely remembered in its diminishing moment.
