A talk by Trevor Howells, Senior lecturer, Heritage Conservation Program Coordinator, University of Sydney.
Adaptive reuse of old buildings is almost as old as architecture itself. This talk will examine, through a series of case studies from around the world, how new uses can be put into fine old buildings with the best of contemporary design and materials.
The projects of some of the world's most celebrated architects, from Australia and abroad, including Carlo Scarpa, Richard Meier, Rafael Moneo and Tadeo Ando will be explored to examine the successes and failures marrying new and old.
Supper: A light supper will be served after the talk approximately at 8:30 pm.
