Donald Insall

  • Living Buildings celebrates the 50th anniversary of Donald Insall Associates, the firm led by esteemed British architect Donald Insall, a leading proponent in the field of architectural conservation.

    Probably best known for his restoration of Windsor Castle after a devastating fire in 1992, Insalls dedication to preservation architecture has ensured the longevity of many of Britains national treasures. These include stately homes, town halls, churches, entire city precincts, hospitals, royal palaces, castles, public buildings and public spaces.

    A detailed examination of Insalls painstaking approach to architectural conservation, Living Buildings is comprehensively illustrated by case studies, drawings, plans and in-depth descriptions.

    Donald Insall Associates is also involved in new design in sensitive or conservation areas and in the design of new monuments and statuary, examples of which also appear in this book.

    Insall's Living Buildings is a practical handbook in which the author shares 50 years of experience with living buildings and his thoughts for the future of architecture.
