Weekly Poll (8)


A short documentary, “Starship Chicago,” by filmmaker Nathan Eddy, was recently released with the hope of saving the city’s polarizing James R. Thompson Center from being sold and, presumably, demolished. What do you think should happen to the iconic building?


Local government officials in Rome have enacted an ordinance that heavily restricts automotive traffic on the boulevard next to the Colosseum after extensive cleaning and restoration work that was recently completed. Architects have said that the traffic was a major reason for the amount of soot and grime that had to be cleaned off the historic structure. Do you think more historic sites should limit traffic?


To preserve Canada’s Grand Théâtre de Québec yet not disrupt the building itself, the plan is to construct a glass casing about 6 feet from the concrete lining around the entire perimeter of the building. Do you think this is a good solution?


The mayor of Philadelphia has created a task force to tackle saving the city’s historic buildings and updating preservation guidelines. Do you think having this committee will be effective?


Architects and preservationists in Washington D.C. criticized the Transit Authority for painting the Metro’s historic, brutalist vault at Union Station white. Do you think this was a justified uproar?


The owner of a nationally protected mansion in the UK is facing a prison term for modernizing the home in violation of the law. Does the punishment fit the crime?


What is your general opinion of local historical commissions?


Neighbors in a historic district are protesting a nearly completed modernist home that the historic commission approved, then a city board rejected. A judge may order the home torn down. What do you think?
