The Prince of Wales has pledged that his new foundation for architecture and the built environment will be a 'crucible for a more humane and holistic approach to the way in which we plan and build'. In a preface the Prince has written for a new book, Industrial Buildings, he made the case for retaining as much of our heritage as possible rather than 'lots of breeze block and tin factories', and argues that even expensive refurbishments of redundant industrial buildings are cheaper than greenfield development and its associated costs.
