New into old

  • Comment

In the great debate about new versus old, it is possible to get constructive compromise.

CABE and English Heritage publish this week (at long last) their joint document on new buildings in historic contexts. The author is Francis Golding who, like Richard Coleman, was a stalwart of the old Royal Fine Art Commission. In that organisation, it was difficult for anyone - except chairman Lord St John of Fawsley - to get a big byline on anything, and I was amused to see that is still the case, though there is a small byline if you look closely. Golding was invited to speak at the launch at the Royal Opera House, only fitting given the labour of love which the book represents.
