11th May 2007, École nationale supérieure d´architecture et de paysage de Lille, Lille, France
The chair of Docomomo International, Prof. Ana Tostões, will present the Lecture “Adaptive Reuse. The Modern Movement Towards the Future” in 11th May 2007 at the École Nationale Supérieure d´architecture et de Paysage de Lille, Lille, in France.
"Preserving the architectural heritage of the 20th century obliges us to take into account both the possibility and the duty to reuse buildings that have lost their function or which are physically and / or technically obsolete, and which no longer meet the standards, which are now increasingly demanding. This inevitably highlights the issue of the value of the existing built fabric, which can be a great resource and that calls our attention in terms of social, economic and environmental sustainability".
