Proposed Article on 301 Renovation
1. Mr. Girard has raised the question “Have we considered (or would we object to) photographing the 301 building for publication?”
2. Mr. Girard thinks that several people would be interested in publishing an article which covers the 301 renovation and design.
3. Here are the pluses and minuses that I see:
-On the plus side, an article:
- Gives Mr. Girard some ‘professional recognition.
- Offers to share the 301 design innovations with the public.
- Might encourage someone else to renovate and preserve a worthwhile old building.
- On the minus side:
- 301 is a private office building and an article would intrude upon that privacy.
4. On balance, there are probably more good reasons to publish an article on 301. Unless I hear to the contrary, I will proceed to talk with Mr. Girard on an exploratory basis.
