Comment of the Day: Sure, but Would We Get To Demolish That, Too?

COMMENT OF THE DAY: SURE, BUT WOULD WE GET TO DEMOLISH THAT, TOO? “There are more than just two options (that we relocate the facade and strip it of its artistic integrity, or that we demolish it). For the price of meticulously deconstructing it, storing it indefinitely, and ultimately (maybe) reconstructing it, we could commit contemporary design principles (to modern building materials, as they should be) to designing a completely new artistic expression, one that is neither a half-hearted attempt at some ill-defined goal or that sullies the meaning or memory of Sterling Laundry, but which has a purpose that is an end in itself.” [TheNiche, commenting on Saving Time on the East End Line: Sterling Laundry and Long-Term Storage]
