While the word "loft" may evoke impressions of echoing artists' studios and cavernous living spaces, Small Lofts reveals how the urban, contemporary spirit of the loft is evoked in downsized single-room dwellings the world over.

When we think of a loft, we usually think of large open spaces, with clearly visible remnants of their industrial origin, converted into homes. Distinguished by their high level of modernity and noteworthy contrasts, they tend to reflect the personalities of their owners more than any other type of construction. But, what happens when there is limited space? Is it possible to have a loft, with all its characteristics, in a space that measures less than 120 square meters? This book contains dozens of examples of lofts from all over the world. They demonstrate that, even with severe space limitations, it is possible to achieve, maintain, and even enhance the purest possible essence of a post-industrial New York loft. Of course, this requires the optimum combination of artistic sensibility and architectural ingenuity.

Back to the City: Issues in Neighborhood Renovation focuses on the policies, social issues, and approaches involved in the residential revitalization of inner cities. The book first offers information on an urban land institute survey of private-market housing renovation in central cities and reinvestment by long-time residents and newcomers. Considerations include character of neighborhood renewal, reasons for reinvestment timing, and an overview of the experience on private renewal. The selection also takes a look at the racial and socioeconomic changes in central-city housing, as well as changes in racial successions, limited support for urban revitalization, and characteristics of transition households. The publication reviews the case studies done at neighborhood resettlements in Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Columbus, Seattle, Charleston, and Philadelphia. Topics include residential mobility of new homeowners; neighborhoods in transitions; displacement; satisfaction with the neighborhood; contrasting conceptions of the neighborhood; and historic preservation and neighborhood. The selection is a dependable reference for geographers, urban planners, and sociologists.
