Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Stressing that ``the single most important aspect of the preservation movement is . . . adapting old buildings to uses different from the ones for which they were originally intended,'' Diamonstein (Buildings Reborn, etc.) describes 48 adaptive reuse projects ``whose new functions and design changes not only are consonant with the original architecture and modern surroundings, but also enhance both.'' Reflecting geographic diversity and a variety of building typesresidential, commercial, recreationalher representative sampling of innovative architectural compensations for changing needs includes a synagogue in St. Louis and a warehouse in Brooklyn that have been renovated into apartments, a one-time warehouse in Los Angeles that is now an art museum, the former house and office of a Philadelphia physician that have become law offices, and a Tucson home-turned-restaurant. ``Before'' and ``after'' photographs and drawings effectively complement a concise, perceptive narrative that vividly interweaves historical, architectural and anecdotal material. (November 14)
Library Journal
An important aspect of the landmarks preservation movement is adaptive reuse, the remodeling of old buildings for new uses. The author's earlier volume, Reborn (Harper, 1978), illustrated that adaptive reuse can be successful both economically and aesthetically. Remaking America presents over 40 current examples of reuse projects. The examples are taken from a wide range of locales and are representative of the diversity in building types. Among the projects discussed are apartment buildings that were once mills and schools, an art museum that was a warehouse, and retail shops in what was once a brewery. The color reproductions are especially good. Highly recommended. Douglas G. Birdsall, North Dakota State Univ. Lib., Fargo
