Preservationists are still hoping for a last-minute pardon for 35 Cooper Square, the old Bowery house slated for demolition. The latest argument to save it, from archicritic Fred Bernstein: "The house is all that stands between two angled, glass-and-steel buildings...Those buildings wouldn't be the same without their modest, gable-roofed companion....the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission should think of some buildings...as buffers, essential elements in making sure new buildings live up to their potential." Not the most compelling argument we've heard, but since vigils and rallies have been done, what's left? [Design Observer via EVG]
