ADAPTIVE BUILDINGS NETWORK
The Adaptive Buildings Network is an organization which advocates for the repurposing of vacant structures which hold high potential within the cities fabric. The team educates designers, investors, builders and all community advocates about the financial and social benefits of repurposing existing structures which hold historic value.Through the education of lecture series on adaptive reuse work in the community, local designers have an opportunity to showcase their work publicly which, in turn, may inspire other designers to take similar approaches to adaptive reuse in their own practice. The organization provides the opportunity for professionals to meet and connect through adaptive reuse based networking events.
Join us in Worcester's Canal District to listen to local architectural designer and recent graduate of Roger Williams University Graduate School of Architecture, Vincent Pacifico, present his vision for a redevelopment of a city block in the northeast corner of the district. His proposal focuses on the adaptive reuse of 20th century industrial buildings in a mixed-use development.
Guest Speaker Eric Army, founder of StudioMEJA, will speak on his studio's adaptive reuse of the Teste Building in Providence, RI.
Networking and light refreshments to follow.
Join the network in a gallery style set up in 'The White Room' at Crompton Place!
