A Notre Dame professor espousing the reign of classical architecture has a bone to pick with preservation organizations: be more consistent, you ninnies! (Paraphrasing.) Stephen W. Semes quotes the case of the rejected Marcel Breuer addition to the Grand Central Terminal versus Norman Foster's LPC-approved "histrionic" glass tower for the Hearst headquarters in Midtown, as well as the Polshek Partnership facade for the Brooklyn Museum (boo!) versus the rejected Michael Graves iterations (yay!) for Breuer's Whitney Museum uptown.
