Mansion survives in shadow of Reform high-rise

NYT – The Reforma Tower is a striking affair: a modern 800-foot skyscraper fused at its base with a pink Venetian-style mansion from the 1920s. It is the latest and arguably most blatant effort to counter criticism from conservationists who have complained that this city is losing its historical charm. In this case, architects have taken one of the few remaining 20th-century, European-inspired houses on the lavish Reforma avenue and slapped a high-rise behind it.
