Paul Rudolph's Goshen Govt. Center

Finally some good news about a threatened Paul Rudolph designed structure!

The Goshen Government Center is a much maligned Brutalist landmark in Orange County, New York. The city council voted today – not to save the structure, but they voted against providing the funds to demolish it. A step in the right direction, at least.

The proposal to demolish has received a lot of press the last couple of months, which hopefully persuaded the committee to a one-vote victory against demolition.

All of us in the design and architecture community owe a big ‘thanks’ to those whose energies help foster understanding and preservation of our architectural heritage.
