Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Convinced that successful architecture in cities relies on sound urban-design precepts, Powell (Architecture Reborn: Converting Old Building for New Uses) has assembled an international selection of 25 urban design projects from the 1990s. Summarizing urban-design developments over the past century, the introductory essay includes stimulating observations amid a few puzzling generalizations on the political, economic, and aesthetic dimensions of the modern city. The four main sections of the book address the city in terms of healing, extending, motion, and culture, offering five to eight examples each. The illustrations are informative and often include site plans or models, but information on specific buildings is at times inadequate (omitting names of architects) or incorrect (as when Powell calls the Museum of Jewish Heritage the Holocaust Museum). Perhaps the most informative aspect of the volume is the captioning, while the index is too brief to be really useful. For larger architecture and urban-design collections.--Paul Glassman, New York Sch. of Interior Design Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
