Old Buildings, New Forms: New Directions in Architectural Transformations

A new book by architect Françoise Bollack

Join architect, preservationist and author Françoise Bollack as she talks about the inspiration for and process of writing her new book, “Old Buildings, New Forms” published by The Monacelli Press. The book is about the preservation of existing buildings, masterful or mundane, and the creative possibilities of preservation: what happens when owners, architects and users engage in the risky adventure of reusing and transforming an existing building. The author observes: “The architecture of additions and transformations is inventive and fresh as it deals with varied problems and a host of limitations.”

Ms. Bollack will focus on some of the 28 global projects in the book. At the conclusion of her lecture, the author will sign books for purchase.
