New Architecture Builds Controversy

The plan to tear down three buildings on Capitol Square in Madison to make way for a new Wisconsin History Center is drawing criticism from some. 

Two of the buildings on North Carroll Street are over one-hundred years old and will be razed as part of the construction plan.  Retired architect and historian Kevin Pomeroy says the new, modern building design will result in the square losing some of its personality and historic look.  Wisconsin Historical Society CEO Christian Overland says he thinks the new architecture will fit into the area well.
