City as Loft examines the remarkable legacy of the industrial age in the United States, Russia, Brazil, China, and Europe. Looking at thirty case studies of repurposed industrial areas, the editors have assembled a variety of essays and interviews to provide a full cast of characters and context for each location, while scholars have contributed information on the history and theory behind the conversion of industrial spaces into other uses. The volume is rounded out with breathtaking images of each venture and an infographic by famed Dutch designer Joost Grootens that allows for the reader to visually compare all thirty projects.
