DTAH Partner Megan Torza will be presenting an RAIC webinar on Adaptive Re-use as a Catalyst for Sustainable Placemaking on Wednesday, March 20 2019, from 1-2PM EDT. Register online here
When considering sustainability in its most holistic terms, it is important to recognize the significant ecological, social, cultural and economic benefits associated with investing in the adaptive re-use of existing buildings. In this webinar, we will explore the benefits of adaptive re-use and revitalization when reinvesting in our cities and communities and share how past examples of adaptive re-use have influenced our architectural and urban design approach for sustainable place-making. By demonstrating the success of adaptive re-use on the individual building scale, with projects such as Evergreen Brick Works and Artscape Wychwood Barns, we prove to municipalities and communities that cultural heritage plays an irreplaceable role in the broader ambitions of placemaking and city-building.
