ON THE COVER: The historic Newberry Library in Chicago, IL, recently underwent a renovation and restoration of its stonework under the direction of a design team from Ann Beha Architects (ABA) of Boston, MA. It was determined that the exterior Stony Creek granite, which was used for original pavers at the entry and an existing stone bench, needed to be cleaned to remove metallic stains. The exterior work included the removal of a fence and the addition of two new Stony Creek granite benches. A new walkway, also built of Stony Creek granite from the original quarry, now provides visitor access to an ADA lift. Photo by Tom Rossiter/www.tomrossiter.com.
