Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Moore, an internationally recognized architect, proposes a sophisticated and at times controversial retooling of historic preservation in order to reverse our current epidemic of urban decay and abandonment. He offers humorous inside accounts of the struggles involved in large-scale rehabilitation projects, and portrays the ways in which developers, architects, politicians, and community organizers vie for power and derail preservation projects. Includes beautiful color photos of projects in Washington, DC, and other cities.
