Ruin and Redemption in Architecture
In four distinct chapters—Lost, Forgotten, Reimagined, and Transformed—this book examines structures and buildings at all stages of neglect, with ample case studies along the way. It's written by Dan Barasch—one of the co-founders of New York City’s Lowline, which seeks to transform an underground, abandoned trolley terminal into a public park. Barasch brings both personal experience and in-depth knowledge to bear upon urban renewal, adaptive reuse, and the social implications of these transformations.
