"Retrofitting of the built environment is one of the most significant challenges for a sustainable future. This book is the result of a long-time effort to establish adaptive reuse as a discipline in its own right. Working with existing buildings has too often been regarded as a second-rate architectural task, the authors show compellingly that this is not the case. Adaptive Reuse of the Built Heritage differs positively from most other books on the subject. Where others are, most often, best-practice-oriented, technical or theoretical, this book combines theoretical approaches with practical tools, it covers philosophical and ethical questions and spans from conservation and restoration perspectives to design and aesthetics. I can heartily recommend this to anybody interested in the field."

Professor Ola Wetterberg, Department of Conservation, University of Gothenburg. and Director of the Centre for Critical Heritage Studies

"The book investigates a vibrant intersection of fields related to the reuse and re-imagination of our existing built environment. Insight, intangible and tangible analysis, strategies, synthesis, and poetry are drawn from and connected to various fields such as Interior Design, Architecture, Conservation, Planning, Philosophy, and History to allow a holistic remaking based on embedded potentials of a host site."

Markus Berger, Associate Professor, Graduate Program Director, Department of Interior Architecture, Rhode Island School of Design
