Resurrection of Buildings: Case Analysis of Renovated Architecture

This book selects more than 50 excellent projects of renovated buildings worldwide. The architects adjust measures to local conditions and ingeniously carry out reposition and design for the buildings’ exterior, interior and landscape environment, thus creating some resurrection for them. Each project inside this book has its peculiar characteristics. Some focus on ecological and sustainable parts, such as rebuilding a factory neighboring to residential communities into a library, which decreases pollution, while at the same time produces some cultural atmosphere. 

Rainwater collection, recycled use of waste and reservation of plants are all the starting points for reconstruction. Some emphasize on the functionality of buildings, such as carrying out reconstruction towards historical administrative building, hence acquiring better functions and more attractive appearance and helping it become landmark architecture. Some stick to reservation and inheritance of historical culture, which integrates new elements while continuing the original historical style and features, thus bringing out new life for the buildings.
