The radical redo is softened by the first story, which was still features its original weathered brick and garage door intact. Offset from the original fire station is the angular silvery skin of the addition. A few contemporary windows and a balcony perched up high give us a hint of what lays inside.

    Recently I wrote a blog entry offering a leftist critique of the ideology of “Green” environmentalism, eco-friendliness, and lifestyle politics in general (veganism, “dumpster diving,” “buying organic,” etc.). I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on the matter and any responses you might have to its criticisms. I’d be especially interested, considering that the majority of my blog is about architecture, particularly modernist architecture, which sought to radically transform nature rather than have as little impact as possible on it.
