Shelf Life Books, 4th Street and 13th Avenue SW

Join us for a discussion of Princeton Architectural Press’ Architecture Briefs series, as led by Bill Johnston.


Increasingly, architects are hired to design new work for existing structures. Whether for reasons of preservation, sustainability, or cost-effectiveness, the movement to reuse buildings presents a variety of design challenges and opportunities. Old Buildings, New Designs is an Architecture Brief devoted to working within a given architectural fabric—from the technical issues that arise from aging construction to the controversy generated by the various project stakeholders to the unique aesthetic possibilities created through the juxtaposition of old and new.

Charles F. Bloszies is an architect and structural engineer that has been actively engaged in work that merges both disciplines since opening his office in San Francisco in 1985.
