Re-Use, Re-purpose, Re-think

September 2012

Adaptive reuse is about re-purposing buildings to meet current operational needs. It's a creative approach to using space, seeing beyond categories associated with established building typologies. Since the 1950s, offices have developed, with few exceptions, along similar lines informed by efficiency and performance criteria, yielding a building stock that is both uniform and dull. Join this session to explore adaptability of existing office buildings by comparing with the option of new buildings. KEY TAKEAWAYS: Identify the context, barriers and opportunities surrounding adaptability of use in the commercial sector. Discover differences between real estate professionals, developers, architects and academics in their understanding and approach to adaptive use. Define the criteria that constitute the basis of a practical approach to adaptable use by engaging with the Adaptable Futures University of Loughborough programme.
