We have to re-use all building rather then demolish?
In our city’s recent history and still today; building development follows a pattern of relentless demolition and rebuilding anew, over repair and reuse. Aside from contributing to the vast amount of building waste that the industry generates, this in turn has reduced the way we value built heritage to just a façade.
How can we retain and build upon the embodied energy (carbon) within our existing built environment? How might we preserve our cultural and built heritage? What architecture will future generations inherit from us?
