By Oxford University Press

A notable feature in cultural life is the growing demand to preserve and promote public access to historical buildings and sites, and artistic treasures of the past.

These developments raise important issues about the scope, content, and relevance of heritage policies in

Skate parks in abandoned industrial zones, ponies grazing alongside the former Berlin Wall, flea markets in empty warehouses, music and fashion shows in hard-to-rent retail locations and climbing walls in development niches--scarcely a city in Europe has made such radically widespread use of ''temporary use'' projects as has Berlin in the last few decades. The idea of temporary use--which has been defined as ''activity in spaces currently unsuitable or undesirable in mainstream economic

The Art of the Plasterer
By Brand: Routledge

George Bankart first wrote The Art of the Plasterer in 1908. It was then re-issued, with amendments, a few years later. Now available from Donhead as a facsimile edition, this impressive, well illustrated volume offers an artistic interpretation of the way plaster was used in response to stylistic changes. Bankart was an architect inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement who cared passionately about the craft of plastering and sought to complement Millar's earlier craftsman's book by producing a
