February 11, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


This course provides an introduction to the process of evaluating existing buildings and designing them for a new use other than the original design or construction intent.  This program will explore environmental, architectural, site, structural and building system aspects of any adaptive reuse building project.  It will also provide guidance for the initial stages of design.
