We wanted to go but had prior commitments. I am struck that the candidates didn't have a historic building in mind. It shows a lack of preparation on their parts, which is disturbing in itself. I have much more to say about contextualism in neighborhoods as a design consideration rather than scale alone, but am on the run. I go to the New Seasons Slabtown market often, and it is obvious to me that the planning department gave no consideration to the mega building that slaps the side (almost literally) of the two-story home it overshadows. I am disgusted every time I look at it. Perhaps later I can write more on contextualism.
