Architects are adapting existing buildings to create new spaces for a more conscious future.

How can we build a sustainable future in an era of climate change and dwindling resources? As our spatial needs evolve faster and faster, architects are exploring ingenious ways to reuse and recycle existing buildings, resulting in a startling transformation of our existing urban fabric.
Building for Change summarizes the strategies of reuse and shows the power for change through groundbreaking projects by some of the world's leading architects. From waste reused as building materials, to buildings redesigned with clever spatial interventions, to modular structures designed for deconstruction, discover how the architecture of creative reuse is helping us build a better future .
