The Master of Arts in Adaptive Reuse course at Rhode Island School of Design equips students with practical and theoretical knowledge of adaptive reuse in architectural practice.
As a post-professional program culminating in a student's first academic degree in architecture, the 45-credit Master of Arts in Adaptive Reuse offers a specialist design education in adaptive reuse.
It establishes a clear aesthetic, a theoretical and technological framework for the study of adaptive reuse that properly equips graduating students to engage in architectural practice.
The curriculum supports students in developing strategies that account for the importance of social and environmental responsibility while expanding upon the architect's understanding of reuse as a product of both practice and theory.
