Description

Now in paperback, Re-Readings is a detailed and fully illustrated analysis of the design strategies available to architects and interior designers supported by an eclectic selection of case studies from around the world.

Much of contemporary architectural work involves the remodelling of existing buildings, presenting considerable structural, aesthetic, environmental, contextual, and programmatic challenges to the designer. Re-Readings makes sense of these challenges by examining the relationship between original buildings and their interventions before carefully extracting distinct theoretical approaches and presenting them as straightforward strategic lessons.

Throughout the book, specially commissioned drawings highlight how the new fits into the existing and all the case studies are sumptuously illustrated with drawings and photographs. Re-Readings brings authoritative order to the complex process of remodelling buildings and will attract practitioners and students of architecture or interior design alike.
