- The role of art in building reuse
- In-depth analysis of international examples
Aims and Scope
Design interventions for the reuse of existing structures must face the question of the past and the extent to which it should be included in the design for the future. This is the point of departure of Int | AR, a yearly publication on current issues in international adaptive reuse.
When and how is material from an existing building the catalyst for art? When does art create function and program within adaptive reuse projects? How can art transform the economics of a built context? When and where does art become building and building become art?
This Int | AR volume presents essays, built or unbuilt projects and ideas that investigate the relationship of art and building reuse.
