redefine: urban living
More InformationShow full item record
The focus of this thesis, [redefine] is how a building's function can be redefined to suit the changing needs of the community through adaptive reuse. Over time buildings cease to function the way they were originally intended. Restoring, renovating and recycling buildings are methods of redefining function. This thesis investigates the mixed use renovation of a 237,000 square foot abandoned brewery bottling building in an attempt to meet the needs and wants in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
