ACE Workshop on the Adaptive Re-use of our Built Environment, Brussels

In the framework of the European Week of Regions and Cities, the Architects’ Council of Europe is organising a workshop on the Adaptive Re-use of our Built Environment for a Greener Europe, in collaboration with the Federal Chamber of German Architects (BAK) and the DG Culture and Education of the EU Commission.

Many heritage places are nowadays disused or have lost the functions for which they were originally built. Through smart renovation and transformation, they can find new, mixed or extended uses. As a result, 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 quality re-use projects contribute to a greener Europe.
