I think it is a fine idea. As long as the siting and the characteristics of the original architecture is considered. But I disagree with Eric, the buildings should absolutely comply with codes
even if it means changing the design. If we didnt, it would undermine our own profession and if god forbid something happened, would a single life be worth it? When one desides he needs a building, I think building good architecture is always a good idea even if it means regurgitating something from the past, as long as it works within the context. As far as the disneyesque quality is concerned, I think it couldnt hurt that we raise public awareness
of good art and architecture. Considering the crap that we see put up everyday, If we rebuild good architecture then I am all for it.
