Architecture reborn : converting old buildings for new uses by Ken Powell( Book )

16 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Architecture Transformed is a detailed investigation into the adaptation and conversion of existing buildings as a distinctive type of architectural design. Examples of this work abound. Renzo Piano has transformed the legendary Fiat factory into a cultural and commercial complex a former public school in Long Island City, NY has become P.S.1 Institute for Contemporary Art and a 1930s factory in Detroit is now the HOPE Center for Advanced Technologies. In color photographs and plans, here are forty-four international schemes that demonstrate that reuse is a positive--even imperative--way to achieve a forward-looking architecture. Four extensive chapters group projects into spaces for living and working, leisure and learning, museums, and unfinished projects such as the British Museum redevelopment by Foster and Partners, and the reconstruction of Grand Central Terminal in New York City. For architects, students, and all proponents of creative reuse of structures, this is an essential pictorial reference and an important collection of case histories

Richard Rogers is head of an internationally respected architectural practice responsible for many landmark buildings around the world and well-known for the quality of its work and its expertise in urban planning. This third volume of the Complete Works looks at the most recent projects by the Richard Rogers Partnership - the period from 1994 to 2004 - and discusses in detail many of the innovative and often hi-tech schemes for which the practice has become renowned. Including over 48 projects, this book features the realized and unrealized projects of the last ten years, such as Greenwich Peninsula and the Millennium Dome, London, a school near Kyoto, the transformation of a Barcelona bullring into a major entertainment complex, masterplans for Wembley, London, and Lisbon, Madrid Airport and London Heathrow's Terminal 5, as well as a new library for Birmingham and London's first Maggie's Centre. The book is prefaced with a general introduction to the office, which brings the story of the practice up to date. The second key essay examines the impact of Richard Rogers in the political arena, particularly his chairmanship of the Urban Task Force and his work as adviser on architecture and urbanism to the mayors of London and Barcelona. The final essay discusses the continuing growth of the practice both at home and abroad and the impact of a new generation of talent rising to the fore

"This book engagingly describes and illustrates over 100 outstanding projects, both large and small, from around Britain - none completed earlier than 2001, and some still under construction or planned. A substantial introduction describes the development of architecture in Britain since the 1960s, with an analysis of the influences that have moulded it and an examination of the major issues that look set to shape it in the future urban regeneration, the current relevance of the 'vernacular', energy concerns, conservation and reuse, and the impact of new materials and technologies. This book makes a forceful contribution to the continuing debate about the role of architecture in forging a new environment and underpinning the growth of a healthy society."--Jacket
