Adaptive Re-Use

Strategies for housing construction in post-war modernism

The conference Adaptive Re-Use discussed strategies for dealing with large housing estates and settlement structures from the period between 1945 and 1975 on the basis of examples from the European region. It was intended to illustrate how settlements in different countries are protected as historical monuments and how they are treated, what role architecture plays in their preservation, and how the housing stock can be further developed in a qualified manner.
