Druot, Lacaton & Vassal: Tour Bois le Pretre.
DRUOT / LACATON / VASSAL.
Druot, Lacaton & Vassal: Tour Bois le Pretre.
This large-format monograph gives an in-depth account of the history, transformation and revitalisation of a 1960s-era residential tower in northern Paris, as seen through the eyes of the French office of Druot, Lacaton & Vassal. It details the architects' rationales and perspectives regarding recycling architecture in an economic and cost-effective manner, which is ultimately more rewarding than demolishing and rebuilding. With numerous full-colour photographs of both interiors and exteriors, plus drawings, plans, and comparisons of the old and new towers, the book serves as a manifesto to the ideals of reuse and its benefits for architecture and urbanism today.
