Written to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Donald Insall’s multi award winning architectural practice, this copiously and beautifully illustrated book begins with the assertion that “Buildings are Alive”. The buildings and their materials “speak eloquently of their local origin” says the passionate architect-planner / author.
His philosophy is combined with practical guidance and in-depth analysis of architectural conservation. From day-to-day maintenance to drastic renovation projects, the book offers advice drawn from case studies of some of the country’s best loved buildings.
At the same time an elegant ‘coffee table book’ and a practical manual for anyone with an interest in architecture and conservation, this book would make an excellent gift or addition to a collection.
