Should older buildings survive? Can they be rehabilitated, adapted and reused in a vital new way? Who are the players that make these decisions? On February 25, an esteemed panel of experts will share their experiences and tackle factors that frame the decision making process. Topics will include:
- Public Opinion and political will
- Profit as motivation
- Recycled architecture - what do the costs reveal?
- Has a paradigm shift toward sustainability inserted a question of ethics into the pro forma?
- How do regulations help or hinder?
