Working Places: The Adaptive Use of Industrial Buildings




Walter C. Kidney

The Society for Industrial Archeology and Ober Park Associates, Inc., 1976

This handbook of case studies, plans, and costs is a definitive study of the work of profit and non-profit developers who have found new uses for industrial buildings. “[F]or the potential investor, who in the best sense is also a preservationist, industrial buildings frequently offer easily subdivided interior space, housed within durable construction that yields higher quality and less expensive space than could be obtained in a new building of comparable size.” The idea for the book originated with the Society of Industrial Archeology’s preservation committee in 1972.
