Discussion on Adaptive Reuse
This program, which begins with a tour, tells about an interesting adaptive re-use in Dearborn near Detroit. When it’s feasible, adaptive re-use supports environmental sustainability, maintains the local cultural identity and reduces the energy expenditure otherwise required to demolish and build a new structure. For its new Ford Engineering Center, the company decided to re-use an empty large department store in a local shopping center. The space is convenient to Ford’s headquarters and provides the occupants close access to retail and restaurant services.
Featured Presenter: Michael Krebs, Director, Commercial Studio, Ghafari Associates
