A step towards education for reuse




From 6 to 9 September 2016, the major event concerning the discussion on the reuse of Modern Movement buildings and sites occurred in Lisbon: the 14th International docomomo Conference. More than 500 people from five continents came together, around keynote and paper sessions, round-tables, tours and workshops, to discuss the subject “Adaptive reuse. The Modern Movement towards the future”. It not only gave rise to the most up-to-date scientific result on the topic – the homonymous proceedings –, as many other strengths and initiatives were driven from that moment on. The research project RMB - Reuse of Modernist Buildings was born from this gathering, in parallel to the first paper session in docomomo conferences specifically dedicated to “Education for Reuse”.
