The Architecture of Additions: Design and Regulationby Paul Spencer Byard, Byard
Why save architecture? A critical foundation for preservation and the management of change, the first of its kind. Provoked by the ban of Marcel Breuer's addition over Grand Central Terminal, The Architecture of Additions examines the impact of new buildings on existing architecture--from St. Peter's and the Louvre Pyramid to the Guggenheim and other late twentieth-century problems--looking for a rule to protect the public interest in great buildings. Its issues affect everyone with a stake in livable cities.
