Adaptive Reuse Excellence – Models to Define Value


Successful adaptive reuse projects can maximize the potentials for existing buildings to both redefine themselves and their context while honoring history. Through exploring several case studies as potential prototypes to consider, be inspired by creative, high-quality design, learn innovations of sustainability, and come away with a greater understanding of the built environment’s role in communities.  Hosted by Committee on Design (COD) and Historic Resources Committee (HRC).
