Quote of the day: Many say no to "fake historic" buildings

“A lot of architects would say the way to treat appropriately a historic district is to do something that is not like a fake historic building that would diminish the history of the area but to do something totally different, so that it’s not trying to mimic historic architecture.”

– Bob McKenna, Chicago Department of Planning and Development, quoted in a Chicago Journal story about the contemporary South Loop high-rise, X/O.
