One response to “Design Review November 28

  1. The “rooftop greenhouse” item is interesting in that after Design Review gave preliminary approval to the concept (based on a presentation by the farmer and Michael Calvert, who was representing a former owner of the building), the current owners of the building subsequently backed out.

    It looked like it could have been a great fit. If well-proportioned and detailed, you could even imagine it having the architectural effect of Jean Nouvel’s Lyon opera house. I hope the proposal finds another suitable, visible site.
