As further land take is no option in cities anymore, the roof – one of the main traditional elements of architecture – is gaining renewed prominence. This book features twenty-four international case studies of city rooftop re-use strategies: by building-on and integrating new volumes within the existing urban fabric, the projects create subtle change in the buildings’ identities. New technologies for light and quick construction methods address both structural constraints and the needs of inhabitants. Far removed from regressive preservation-only behavior, Roofscape Design reveals an adaptive attitude towards regeneration issues by offering multiple ways of living, working and using public services in the city.

Abstract

As further land take is no option in cities anymore, the roof – one of the main traditional elements of architecture – is gaining renewed prominence. This book features twenty-four international case studies of city rooftop re-use strategies: by building-on and integrating new volumes within the existing urban fabric, the projects create subtle change in the buildings’ identities. New technologies for light and quick construction methods address both structural constraints and the needs of inhabitants. Far removed from regressive preservation-only behavior, Roofscape Design reveals an adaptive attitude towards regeneration issues by offering multiple ways of living, working and using public services in the city.
