Why is this interesting? - The Ventilation Edition

Brand proposes that "...buildings adapt best when constantly refined and reshaped by their occupants, and that architects can mature from being artists of space to becoming artists of time...More than any other human artifacts, buildings improve with time—if they’re allowed to." The book shows how to work with time rather than against it.

Book by Stewart Brand discussing the evolution and adaptation of buildings over time, examining the ways that buildings are modified and repurposed by their occupants.
