So New Spaces for Old Buildings turned out to be quite uninspiring despite the cool, industrial renovation depicted on its cover. Considering it was published in 2008, perhaps the rest of the buildings featured just missed the bubble of cool industrial (re)design. In fact, many were exceptionally tacky, with hardly a hint as to what the original space looked like. There is also a lack of before and after photos to readers envision the transformation. Not worth keeping around for ideas. Maybe someone else will like this book better.
