Thought Leadership: Arch Nexus Presents: Regenerative Design Through Adaptive Reuse

Are you in Chicago attending GreenBuild 2018? Don’t miss tomorrow mornings breakout session, presented by Arch Nexus’ Kenner Kingston and Patty Karapinar: Regenerative Design through Adaptive Reuse.

If architecture is the largest energy-consuming and emitting sector of the US economy, architecture is also the solution. Much of our green building industry is focused on new construction on greenfield sites, yet existing buildings within and around cities are ripe for regenerative design opportunities. Through thoughtful adaptive reuse, we are poised to transform our cities and the lives of the people within them. By reinvesting in the building stock we have, we take the most sustainable action of all in that we avoid further consumption of not only building materials, but also open space, clean air, and precious natural resources.

Last Friday, September 21 was Park(ing) Day 2018, a day when people are encouraged to take back the streets by converting parking spaces into “parklets”. Arch Nexus got involved by building out two locations; one in Sacramento and one in Salt Lake City.
