MetadataShow full item record
This thesis looks at the development of contemporary architecture in historic settings by comparing the work of architect Moshe Safdie in two projects. The museums, the Telfair Museum in Savannah, Georgia and the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts are both uniquely situated within historic urban cities that govern development through design review. The thesis looks at the state of contemporary design in historic settings, barriers to design, and the success or failure of the design review process.
