GOSHEN, N.Y. (AP) - Officials say the partial demolition and renovation of strikingly modernist government building in the Hudson Valley will continue after a court rejected a bid to stop the work.

Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus said Wednesday that a state Supreme Court judge has denied a temporary restraining order to stop construction work at the county government center in Goshen, about 50 miles north of New York City.

Crews for several months have been removing asbestos and performing other work on the building, notable for its imposing exterior featuring a jumble of different-sized corrugated concrete boxes with large windows.

Proponents of the building designed by the late architect Paul Rudolph have been unable to stop the work in court.

The Paul Rudolph Heritage Foundation, which filed the latest lawsuit, had no immediate comment.
