CREATIVE RE-USE

This research project aims to focus on restoring the old buildings and reusing it for future which enhances the relation between its functionality and form of a building with the help of new technique, styles and material. Adaptive re-use is the opportunity to create a sustainable and uniquely designed structure with nod to history and a current purpose.

As time passes, the functionality of a building reduces due to external factors and the activity of the building decreases day by day. Now the question arises as to what happens to the building when it loses its functionality. Nowadays most of the buildings, especially older ones look into a keyword “ADAPTIVE RE-USE”
