Old is New: Creative Approaches to Adaptive Reuse-A Walking Tour of the West Village

 “New Design+Old Places”

Pre-Conference Tour

October 27, 2013 at 1pm


Led by: Françoise Bollack, HDC Board President and author of “Old Buildings – New Forms: New Directions in Architectural Transformations”.

A walk on Greenwich and Washington Streets shows the evolution of creative adaptive reuse in the West Village: from early, massive projects like the Federal Archives building and Westbeth, to more recent, formally inventive interventions in the Meatpacking/Gansevoort Market District, and many surprises in between.

Meeting location upon registration

The tour is part of HDC’s 2014 conference “New Design+Old Places”. Through the conference we will showcase projects that broaden traditional perceptions of the field of historic preservation and incorporate contemporary design with historic resources.
