New Construction for Older Buildings: A Design Sourcebook for Architects and Preservationists
As a result of the historic preservation movement, the addition of new construction to existing architecture is no longer limited to historic or significant buildings. This design sourcebook conveys existing attitudes and interesting ideas regarding the combining of old and new architecture, and covers the many practical issues architectural firms must consider. Each of the three main sections addresses a specific approach to combining old and new architecture: additions to buildings, altering the original, and new construction. And each clearly shows that design decisions can and should combine a reasoned approach to the existing environment with the new demands of today. Examples by architectural firms such as Roche Dinkeloo, SOM, Cambridge Seven Associates, Geddes Brecher Qualls Cunningham, and Paul Rudolph illustrate the wide range of responses to design decisions as well as their varying degrees of success.
