On Wednesday 9 October, on the occasion of the European Week of Regions and Cities of Brussels, a workshop on the Adaptive Re-use of our Built Environment for a Greener Europe will take place. It has been organized by the Architects’ Council of Europe, in collaboration with the Federal Chamber of German Architects (BAK) and the European Commission's DG Culture and Education.
There are nowadays to many empty heritage places that have lost their functions and are subject to the neglect of time. Through smart renovation and transformation, they can find new, mixed or extended uses. Their social, environmental and economic value can increase, while their cultural significance is enhanced.
The workshop will aim to discuss the benefits, challenges and barriers inherent to the re-use of heritage places and how this kind of quality project contributes to a greener Europe. For more information and registration: Workshop on adaptive re-use of built heritage
