how new architecture pays tribute to old

Found this while on tour, in Memphis. Beale Street, 'Home of the Blues' makes a spectacular tribute to historic architecture, while developing new spaces for its residences.

They've actually kept the facade of the building, and added additional supports. The supports work like sculpture, making the buildings a focal point. Just beyond the facade are open air patios, where pedestrians can enjoy their "big ass beers."
