  1. Hi Lisa: as always great topic and examples! I’ve heard many strong arguments on both sides of the museum issue. In addition a number of design solutions to save the structure are coming to the surface i.e., envelope. Often friendships strengthen between neighbours when they are willing to compromise in order to achieve desired results.
    Best regards,
