Designing New Buildings for Historic Settings: "Modern architects who intentionally ignore the character of existing neighborhoods and cities are guilty of neglecting the visual heritage and tradition that defines a place and its people. Whether that place is a rural environment or a busy urban street, each place has a story to tell that speaks to our national heritage. Each place in our built environment arouses distinct associations that signify where we as individuals or as a nation have journeyed. Each place with which we are familiar should be viewed as a link to the future not as a barrier to it."
