“Looking at the ways several major post-industrial cities in the United States—including Chicago, Detroit, and Pittsburgh—have activated industrial spaces to become new community assets, architect Matteo Robiglio presents 20 urban stories representative of successful adaptive reuse practices, drawing from their experiences an eight-step procedure for making adaptive reuse processes work. RE–USA provides a basic toolkit, a synthetic theoretical framework, and a selected bibliography, offering inspiration and guidance for how cities can reuse their industrial legacy as an infrastructure for innovative future development.”
