at times architects must visit existing buildings to investigate, measure, study and ponder before starting their work….

today a bit of history, a bit of wondering, a bit of yesterday as I visited a (pre-Civil War?) building that is slated for renovation.

it is important to remember that architecture was here before us, and I certainly hope we make architecture to be here when we’re gone. let’s make good decisions and not borrow against tomorrow.
