Item description for Old Buildings Looking for New Use: 64 Examples from Europe by Pierre Thiebaut...
The regions of Europe have an architectural heritage that is a thousand years old; today's challenge is to integrate this heritage into contemporary life in a sustainable way. The examples presented in this book all demonstrate a desire to be considered as local projects and to take their place in an evolutionary interpretation of history. After more than a century of conflicting debate on the subject of rehabilitation, it seems that the aims expressed in the Charter of Venice have borne fruit by giving rise to quality and personalized buildings that themselves are a contribution to this debate.
