With time, everything experiences wear and tear including buildings. Oftentimes, these magnificent structures fall into disrepair due to lack of use, funds or relevance to current cultures. However, a recent increase in interest in a rising architectural approach called, ‘adaptive reuse’ has seen many attempts at reviving such dying facets of former glory as witnessed in the images below.
Scroll below for a gallery of creatively transformed buildings that give these structures a second-life, having been repurposed into useful avenues of income or providing much needed relief for low-income neighbourhoods.
