Ruin and Redemption in Architecture by Dan Barasch is a new book from Phaidon that examines how abandoned and ruined buildings are being reimagined, transformed, and repurposed. The book features incredible photography of structures all over the world and reveals the fascinating stories behind their renovations, both completed and planned. Dan Barasch is able to offer expert insight into this topic as he is the co-founder of The Lowline project, which aims to transform New York City's trolley terminal into the first underground park. For anyone interested in history, architecture, or the conservation of resources, this book is a must-read. Below is a slideshow with several examples of the breathtaking structures you can find in Ruin and Redemption in Architecture (all images and quotations courtesy Phaidon).
