W 9:30am-12:00pm, 230 Anderson Hall
 
Small, focused, introductory-level course in discussion, workshop and/or design-based format on topics related to current research in architecture.
 
Adaptive re-use is both a philosophy and a practice. We consider the “why” and “how” in the full range of architectural rehabilitation: meticulous restorations, modest renovations, and innovative forms of re-use. Using case studies as a background, adaptation will be examined at various scales, including materials, buildings, historic districts, and landscapes. The numerous forces that shape these projects will be evaluated: context, concepts, methods, economics, public policy, and sustainability. Every existing building occupies a place in the present while maintaining a position in the past; in this seminar, we speculate on their participation in the future.
 
Open to non-architecture students, sophomores and above. Space is limited and registration does not guarantee a space in this course. The final course roster is formulated on the first day of class by the individual instructor.
