Unit 10 - Theory and methods in support of adaptable buildings

Kendall, Stephen (United States) / Ando, Masao (Japan)

Sustainable or adaptable buildings as we know them in history have the in-built ability to adjust to changing circumstances and technologies, without excessive waste and conflict. They are functionally "agile", providing accommodation capacity far in excess of tightly integrated and functionally determined buildings. If the parts that change over time are designed for assembly, disassembly and reuse, an additional benefit in the service of a sustainable future is available. In keeping with these subjects, this session presents a series of papers and discussions from recognized international experts, aiming to demonstrate a variety of approaches to adaptable and open building.
