Paul Rudolph's Government Center Will Be Partially Razed

New, 3 comments

For months, preservationists have been battling to save Paul Rudolph's Brutalist showpiece, the ailing Orange County Government Center in Goshen, N.Y., from partial demolition and "soul-crushing" updates. Earlier this spring, the county-planned overhaul was stalled after a local lawyer Michael Sussman brought the case to court, requesting a temporary restraining order to block the project. At the time, State Supreme court judge Christopher Cahill prohibited any demolition work until July so he can have enough time to review the arguments from both sides. Well it's effectively July, and the ruling is in: the $74M renovation can go forward.
