A former power plant becomes an art mile; a tea house is built on the remnants of a historical wall. Everywhere we encounter buildings which are no longer used in their original state and now provide the setting for new uses. As disparate as the structures in question themselves are the structural and technological demands they impose on the architect. Whether the subject is energy-conscious renovation or progressive conversion, these new language editions of In Detail: Building in Existing Fabricincorporate innovative examples from Italy, France, and Spain developed specially for these volumes. Introductory essays by noted experts deal with the subject in depth from the perspectives of historical preservation, economy, and building technology. From a structure’s surrounding environment to large-scale representations of details, all of the drawings are meticulously researched and presented with the customary high quality and with the competence and experience of the editorial staff at DETAIL.
