Beauty Redeemed: Recycling Post-Industrial Landscapes

In stock (50 items available)
Coping with post-industrial brownfields is an issue throughout Europe and North America. In Germany, industrial relics were not demolished or converted but perceived as integral parts of the overall concept and then imbued with new meaning and use. Many post-industrial sites have since been refurbished into attractive urban parks. This book does not only describe a systematic framework for the use of post-industrial ruins it also contextualises them in design history.
