Summary
"Living Buildings celebrates the 50th anniversary of Donald Insall Associates, the firm led by esteemed British architect Donald Insall, a leading exponent in the field of architectural conservation. A detailed examination of Insall's painstaking approach to architectural conservation, Living Buildings is comprehensively illustrated by case studies, drawings, plans and in-depth descriptions. Donald Insall & Associates is also involved in new design in sensitive or conservation areas and design of new monuments and statuary, examples of which also appear in the book. Insall's Living Buildings is a practical handbook in which the author shares his more than 50 years of experience with 'living buildings' and his thoughts for the future of architecture."--BOOK JACKET
