      TR08 Adaptive Reuse on College Hill

      Walking TourLia Dykstra and Erica Kinias, Brown University, Tour LeadersAIA CES: 1.25 LU Brown University, as well as Providence more broadly, has an exceptional number of reused buildings. Many of the University's academic departments are located in former houses surrounding campus, while others are in university buildings whose function has changed since their initial construction. This tour will begin at the Convention Center, from which we will walk up to Brown's campus on the hill. We will explore several examples of adaptive reuse, and the ways in which these buildings have maintained the history of the original building in their renovation. The tour will visit a series of buildings with varying degrees of adaptive reuse. Participants will visit, for example, Robinson Hall, home of the former library, opened in 1878, which maintains much of its original interior. The tour will also go to the former Pembroke College campus, to explore the old Main Building of the college, whose interior was completely renovated by Toshiko Mori in 2008 to house the Pembroke Center. Participants will have the opportunity to tour the interiors of several different buildings and discuss other instances of adaptive reuse on campus. This tour is open to the public and is part of the 72nd Annual International Conference of the Society of Architectural Historians.   FAQs How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
