Preservation through Transformation: A Review of Recent Adaptive Reuse Projects

WHAT:  Since New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Law was introduced fifty years ago, it has played a critical role in protecting historically significant buildings, and informing the landscape of New York. Many restoration projects undertaken since the law was enacted illuminate the transformation of historical structures through adaptive reuse. Meenakshi Srinivasan, The Chair of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, will look back on significant adaptive reuse projects, followed by an examination of current challenging projects in their first phases by the architects.
