Bringing Buildings Back To Life, Chester Smolski Apr 1978

Bringing Buildings Back To Life, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"The name of the game in building use today is historic preservation, conservation and restoration. In cities all over the country major efforts are directed toward the saving of existing buildings and, in some cases, converting of them to other uses, a process called recycling or adaptive reuse."

New Spirit In Old Savannah - A City With Plans, Chester Smolski

Smolski Texts

"A large downtown is normally characterized by tall buildings because demand in this most accessible location is strong, with intensive use of the land being the result. Approaching a city, as one looks off in the distance at the cityscape, one is able to quickly locate the central business district as, for example, one drives south on Route 146 toward Providence. Such is not the case in this serene and lovely, port city of Georgia."
