9780471662945: Preservation of Modern Architecture

As today's valued examples of modern architecture age to the point that preservation is called for, the methods and technology used in such preservation must be carefully considered so that the design integrity of the building is maintained. Written by the president of an organization committed to the documentation and preservation of modern architecture, this book outlines best practices for undertaking such efforts and addresses the latest technological advances in the field. Containing relevant case studies of preservation projects in the United States and in Europe, this is the only professional reference for architects dedicated specifically to the subject of preserving modern architecture.

From the Back Cover:

An architect's guide to the preservation of modern architecture filled with illustrative case studies

Modern architecture, built from approximately the 1920s to the 1970s, defined the twentieth century. Now, as works of modern architecture face a fate ranging from deterioration to functional obsolescence, the unique challenges of saving these buildings are evolving preservation practice. How does one preserve the design intent and character of a modern building while using new materials and advanced technologies not available when the building was constructed? Author Theodore Prudon answers that question in this comprehensive professional reference for architects and preservation professionals on the preservation of twentieth-century modern architecture.

Preservation of Modern Architecture is divided into two parts that comprehensively cover both theory and practice, including the latest building materials and technology:

Part One includes an introduction to the topic, and explores evolving preservation philosophies and standards as well as preservation issues unique to modern materials and systems. Part One also guides you through the investigation and assessment of modern buildings and structures.

Part Two is filled with case studies of preservation projects throughout the United States, Europe, and Australia, including accompanying photographs and illustrations. Projects range from single-family residences to performing arts centers, schools, airport terminals, and industrial complexes, giving the reader a full range of both the challenges and techniques involved in preserving modern structures, small and large.
