Description

Issue 17 of SPEECH: is devoted to the item “Contrast.” It is focused on architecture which is intentionally much brighter than its surrounding. Contrast as the use of solids vs voids, light vs dark, various sizes and various textures as well as new vs old. Contrasting architectural styles can be a tricky proposition, especially in preventing the addition from looking dated or outshining the historic buildings. In some cases, these modern renovations successfully preserve the originals while bringing something fresh and new, while others fall on their faces. This issue represents both extremes, and a lot in between, analyzing the conditions of the harmonic coexistence of the historical and modern architecture.
