But if possible a pastiche building should try to be as ‘true’ as possible by replicating a building that was on the site before unless the context has changed and it would be inappropriate.

Graham, this is exactly the problem with falseness. To the untrained eye no difference can be told between the older building, or buildings, and the replica. As What? said in an earlier post, as the building ages it become hard to tell them apart in terms of age. The better – if that is right term – the fake is the worse the situation is. It is even more fake because it trying to hide the reality from the viewer.

As Harry Block said in Deconstructing Harry;

“Tradition is the illusion of permanence”
