Tools for Re-Use Research
The purpose of this investigation is to develop Tools for Re-use for vacant non-residential buildings. Tools for Re-use include generic architectural and engineering strategies for recycling different types of utilitarian buildings. The challenge is to determine the effect of the generic strategy on the cultural, usage and future value of the specific utilitarian building type. The research is executed in collaboration with Abram de Boer of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, and the Real Estate & Housing Department and the RMIT section of the Faculty of Architecture at TU Delft.
