The publication accompanying Germany’s contribution to the 13th International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale 2012

In Germany, working with existing structures has become the architect’s most important task, the objective being to recognize and redevelop the energy and potentials of such structures: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. The approaches put forward here for dealing with them demonstrate what is possible in “everyday” building endeavors. Architects respect existing buildings, examine them from a contemporary point of view, and develop architecture through their interventions. With numerous best-practice examples, this book offers an overview of innovative strategies for regenerating, reusing, renovating, and augmenting pre-existing structures. Interviews, statements, and international references generate a changing self-image—of architects who, when transforming existing buildings, no longer see themselves as creators but as developers. (German edition ISBN 978-3-7757-3424-0)

Exhibition schedule: 13th International Architecture Exhibition, Venice, August 29–November 25, 2013
