Abstract

The old American struggle between gentility and individual liberty has reappeared in the guise of something called “design review,” which centers on the idea that the public should exercise some sort of independent, external control over the appearance of buildings, and that the public good requires some sacrifice of private expression. In other words, just as there are building codes, fire codes, and public health codes, there ought to be architectural codes.
