Use-Re-Use: Adaptive Modernism

The workshop, curated by Prof Carmella Jacoby Volk, Dr. Shelly Cohen and Arch. Rebecca Sternberg, will consist of 10 minute presentations surrounding research and projects that address re-use of buildings and re-purposing of modernist architecture, urban fabrics and landscapes.
The discussions suggested a wide range of perspectives on the contemporary significance of re-using modernisms built legacy, within the context of the contemporary uses, users, and current social, political, economic and cultural climates.
