Description


A striking new investigation of design strategies, ideas and critical thinking in interior architecture.

Using 40 international case studies, Adaptation Strategies for Interior Architecture and Design starts with the existing building and shows how designers and architects can bring together responses, ideas and resources in order to form new, clear and meaningful spatial designs.

With 20 years' experience in the field, Brooker introduces readers to the importance of context in both its site-specific and cultural meaning - from a disused aircraft hangar, to an old water defense. He examines eight different approaches to show how the adaptation of existing and, in particular, old buildings, can provide unique and unusual transformative solutions for the historic and contemporary built environment.
