    DescriptionIncreasingly, architects are hired to design new work for existing structures. Whether for reasons of preservation, sustainability, or cost-effectiveness, the movement to reuse buildings presents a variety of design challenges and opportunities. Old Buildings, New Designs is an Architecture Brief devoted to working within a given architectural fabric from the technical issues that arise from aging construction to the controversy generated by the various project stakeholders to the unique aesthetic possibilities created through the juxtaposition of old and new.

    Review quote
    "A San Francisco architect-engineer makes an understated but convincing case that aged buildings are tough enough to be altered or expanded in visually provocative ways. The 19 case studies include our Contemporary Jewish Museum, where a blue-steel cube collides with red brick, and 185 Post St., where a stocky masonry survivor now preens behind a taut glass veil." - San Francisco Chronicle
