Description

The rehabilitation and renovation of buildings is an interesting way of solving the architectural problems concerning the new urban, social, environmental and economic realities of the globalised world in which we live. Buildings and architecture must develop and reflect this change, reinventing themselves in light of these new requirements.

Refurbishment is the conservation of elements of cultural interest which continue to be essential for the preservation of our historical heritage. Rehabilitation should explore all the functions from private to commercial, from industrial to public, from large to small, finding constant meeting points between the particular and mutable needs of the society.

The objective of this book is to show examples of the different possibilities of refurbishment, with new ideas for the re-use of space. It looks at how an architect can modify and reinvent existing functions, highlighting the possibility to play with the space while offering new solutions for new users. Building Refurbishment is a superbly illustrated volume that brings together a wide range of examples - from the infinite range of possibilities offered by architectonic restructuring - that display new ideas and new spatial concepts, whilst overcoming the problems posed by new urban, social, environmental, and economic realities.
