Many heritage places are nowadays disused or have lost the functions for which they were originally built. Through smart renovation and transformation, they can find new uses and bring further economic, social, environmental and cultural values to individuals and the society. The workshop will aim to discuss the benefits, challenges and barriers inherent to adaptive re-use projects, starting out from the Leeuwarden Declaration that was adopted last year as a legacy of the European Year of Cultural Heritage and through the presentation of good practices and findings from different perspectives.
