Abstract

The practice of Adaptive Reuse is often related to a profound socio-economic shift; specifically, it implies the abandonment or decommissioning of an industrial, economic or social system, and its relative structures, and is often concerned with the experimentation of a new model. Emerging countries are of particular note because they are required to tackle this profound change which needs tangible space and energies. Adaptive reuse is therefore crucial, enabling them to exploit existing structures while preserving historical heritage. Re-use and re-adaptation are, indeed, common practices that have a historical background seen throughout human history; nevertheless, during recent decades, this sensitive design approach has also been characterized by an advanced neo-sustainability related to the environment in general. This trend is part of a widespread interest in exploitation of existing resources, represented by the concept of Restoration Economy.
