Modern Adaptation { Columbus Iron Works }

It's always interesting when an historic building gets a modern renovation. I suppose I'm in the school of thought that finds it more intriguing when there is a clear distinction between old and new. The exterior and interior photographs are of the Columbus Iron Works turned into the Columbus Georgia Trade and Convention Center.

This was a beautiful facility for the wedding I attended a few weeks ago. I captured these shots during my hair and make-up break eager to explore the architecture.

Stay tuned for more photos of the wedding celebration.

Nice photos! When done properly, clearly distinguishing between the old & new portions of a historic building can be very interesting indeed. On the other hand, I think it takes a lot of courage & knowledge to seamlessly design an addition/renovation to an older building.

Yes, no matter which approach, it has to be done well.
