The Reformation in historical thought by A. G Dickens( Book )

16 editions published between 1985 and 1999 in English and German and held by 926 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By any reckoning the Reformation has proved a giant among international movements of modern times -- a catalyst for dramatic changes in intellectual life, social behavior, and material conditions. The authors examine the whole field of historical writing on this major segment of modern Western history, from its earliest struggle over the meaning of Christianity to the emergence of larger questions of human freedom, the development of objective attitudes, and research into social-religious structures. The Reformation in Historical Though will become the standard critical guide to the main developments of Reformation studies, as well as a stimulus to further research. Its vast scope and penetrating analysis will make it a classic of early modern European intellectual history. - Publisher

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

15 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 574 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
