Repurposing Industrial Sites
Check out the online gallery of projects featured in the Retooling Industrial Sites, an exhibit at the Center for Architecture from February 5th through March 26th presented as part of Infill Philadelphia, which showcased the work of over 30 design firms in transforming old industrial sites back to productive use and featured inventive examples from Philadelphia and cities across the country.
The exhibit was a forum for the growing interest in industrial sites and urban manufacturing and the important role of design in making industry a positive part of urban neighborhoods.
The projects selected for the exhibit represented a diverse mix of built and un-built work from warehouse conversions to brownfield redevelopment to neighborhood master plans which include new factories, office space, schools, housing, interpretive historical sites, and mixed-use development. The projects pay homage to the industrial past and provide a vision for a new industrial and urban renaissance.
