Re-readings 2 is a companion book to Re-readings, originally published in 2004. This second volume is testament to the growing interest and demand for clarification of the re-modelling, adaptation and transformation processes within the existing built environment. With increased interest in the sustainability and heritage agenda and emerging interest from non-European-centric areas of the world in this type of work, this book explores how the re-modelling of existing buildings is a sustainable and viable alternative to the construction of new buildings. Throughout this highly-illustrated book, drawings and photos of various projects from around the world highlight how the new fits into the existing. Case studies are analysed holistically, and include information on the practical issues and challenges of individual projects.

Professor Graeme Brooker is Head of Interiors at The Royal College of Art, London. He has published widely on many aspects of the interior, and in particular the reuse of existing buildings. His recent publications include Adaptations (Bloomsbury, 2016) and Key Interiors Since 1900 (Laurence King, 2013). He has co-edited (With Sally Stone) seven books on the interior, including the highly acclaimed Volume 1 of Re-readings (RIBA, 2004). He co- edited (with Lois Weinthal) The Handbook of Interior Architecture + Design (Bloomsbury, 2013). He is a member of the editorial advisory board of the journals, Interiors: Design: Architecture: Culture (Bloomsbury), and IDEA. He is the founder and director of the charity Interior Educators (IE), the national subject association for all interior courses in the UK. Sally Stone is an internationally recognised expert on the subject of the interior and the interpretation and remodelling of the existing situation. Her writing includes published books, inclusion in edited books and journals, invitations to speak at international conferences, and requests to direct workshops. Sally is a Reader in Architecture at the Manchester School of Architecture, where she is the Programme Leader for the Master of Architecture. She also leads Continuity in Architecture; a postgraduate studio for research, practice and teaching, which seeks to find ways to derive delightful, rigorous and measured responses to complex contexts and historically sensitive environments. Sally is the co-recipient of the UK Government sponsored Heritage Heroes Award in recognition of her work to save the magnificently Brutal Preston Bus Station.
