The Church of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva in its current state. This facade was meant to be 'temporary', has lasted 200 years. Nowadays, what we call 'permanent' hardly lasts 30 years...
After the proposal was completed, I discovered to my delight this proposed facade design by Ferndinando Fuga, the last in long line of great Baroque architects. The similarity in thinking was a nod of approval for me.
