Title: Contrasting History
Author: Jensen, Jared
Abstract: This graduate thesis examines the inherent meaning in a constructed building and using that to find a new purpose for that building that embraces its style, age, and purpose. Through this connection with history, the thesis project will attempt to show that adaptive reuse can be used as a tool for revitalizing a community that has been broken down by population decline and blighted buildings. As humans continue to struggle more and more with managing the use of earth’s resources, adaptive reuse will become an extremely important and cost effective method to reducing the amount of material used in building construction.
