The sad thing here is that there was an argument to keep this building and use it to supplement the new one. I was not on the committee that made the final judgment, but I expect cost was a deciding factor. In earlier debates we saved a few old buildings because it cost less to keep and modify them than to build a new building. We should have realized that argument could be used both ways.

The thing is, there are other factors that should have more impact than they do.  I do believe aesthetics should be a main factor, though I have heard this belief is less accepted now, even among some architects.

Oh well, buy the time people realize what they have done it will be too late to go back. At least we canl give them pictures of what they gave up.
