Steven Semes’ recent From Contrast to Continuity: A New Preservation Philosophy, a take on the divide over appropriate development for historic areas, seems to be resonating along the local email networks this weekend:
Thoughtful preservationists and citizen activists are increasingly frustrated with the stylistic biases of authorities who seem blind to the visual consequences of their judgments.
