New into old

  • Comment

Another lively discussion took place at the launch of Francis Golding's Building in Context publication, for English Heritage and CABE, partly prompted by his comment that it had been very difficult finding examples of really good new buildings in historic settings, particularly in 'ordinary'places. The hideous truth is that there aren't many. English Heritage looked jolly smug at the opening, but it must have occurred to them that they might be part of the problem as well as the solution. The whole subject had another airing this week, at a seminar on Richard Coleman's crusade to reform PPG 15, the planning advice dealing with exactly the subject of the Golding document. These two old Royal Fine Art Commission warhorses are doing us all a service.
