Exploring the opportunities and parameters for creative reuse in the built environment, this course is led by Dr Ruth Lang, author of Building for Change The Architecture of Creative Reuse (2022), and Matthew Blunderfield, an Associate Lecturer at the RCA whose MA Architecture studio has focused on the reuse of 1980s shopping malls and office buildings.

Throughout the sessions, the course leaders and invited international experts will provide participants with creative inspiration, insight into global best practices, and the latest developments in applying reuse strategies in architectural designs.

Using a range of built case studies, we will explore the social, economic, material, and environmental imperatives for creative reuse and use this insight as the basis to develop new design strategies for employing these methods in your own work.

The course will highlight the untapped opportunities for the reuse of materials, buildings and sites, and methods of designing for adaptation and deconstruction that we can employ to ensure a more sustainable future.

The course will provide an understanding of the material, environmental, economic, and social implications of reusing architectural resources, provide insight from world-leading practitioners as to how they have developed reuse schemes and share strategies for employing these innovative practices in your own work.
