50 percent of general global waste is produced by the construction industry - in particular, demolition. The promise of the new often prevails over the preservation of the built environment.
It is time to take a new direction. To re-evaluate a complex architectural strategy with the renovation of existing buildings and their requirements to combine sustainable aspirations with an awareness of historical significance.
Based on two completed projects - one in China and the other one in Germany - this presentation will help to demonstrate the benefits of renovation projects under varying conditions and within different cultural backgrounds.
