This thesis work looks to explore and determine the lifetime/expiration of a structure. The longevity of a building’s life is its ability to adapt to current needs. The project will use the shells of old structures in Duluth, Minnesota, which both creates and recycles components to ensure its survival through programmatic changes until its expiration. This work will display the importance of re-purposing and recycling, while creating new jobs and markets for the region. Best if Used By: Duluth Recycling and Production Factory will consist of both public interaction and factory for production spanning 70,000sqf of an old pier in the harbor.
