Britain does have many examples, and those that involve both regeneration and the re-use of old buildings might be suitable.

the Bankside power station has been turned into the very successful Tate Modern gallery, but Battersea power station along the river has been a disaster and is still the subject of bickering. There are some very fine schemes on the southern bank of the Thames, particularly around the Design Museum, which re-use old areas and old warehouse buildings. These have turned one of London's grimest areas into one of its most intriguing. But has it really worked, or is it just an isolated area surrounded by larger out-moded and characterless areas ?
