Description

Living Buildings celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Donald Insall Associates, the Practice founded by distinguished British architect Donald Insall, a leading exponent in the field of Architectural Conservation. Probably best known for the restoration of Windsor Castle after a devastating fire in 1992, the team's dedicated work has ensured the longevity of many of Britain's national treasures.

This book presents a detailed examination of a painstaking approach to architectural conservation, comprehensively illustrated by case-studies, drawings, plans and in-depth descriptions. It is designed for a wide readership among all those who love and care for old buildings and appreciate good new design in sensitive areas.

  • New look at architectural conservation. Includes introduction by author Donald Insall, and a foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales
  • Head architect of restoration for Windsor Castle after the 1992 fires. The book focuses on Donald Insall & Associates with a chronology of the firm's work from its post-war beginnings
  • Features sections on day-to-day building care, maintenance, conservation, major repairs, and restoration and rebuilding
  • A practical handbook in which the author shares 50 years of experience with 'Living Buildings' and his thoughts for the future
