The exhibit may not be quite enough to suit the architecture student or the local community leaders who are considering participation in what Diamonstein refers to as America's "adaptive reuse explosion." A greater variety of recycled landmarks and more details on the structures that are included would have been useful. The show does, however, provide a provocative hour or so that should serve as a primer for beginning preservationists. Currently at the Museum of the City of Mobile through June 8, the exhibit opens in Wheeling, W.Va. on June 28, Boston on August 16, Albuquerque on October 4 and South Bend, Ind. on November 22 before continuing to seven other sites next year. A duplicate exhibit will be unveiled at Manhattan's Fraunces Tavern Museum on June 10.
