Adaptive Re-use

From the Chicago Architecture Foundation five signs a city is adaptive.

In the past, buildings were often reused for economic reasons, but today more citizens and developers are interested in historic preservation. The preservation of historically significant buildings in an adaptive city adds social value. It allows people to come together and share a common bond over the love of a place, and it spurs rediscovery of the city and its culture.

Boston can not continue to allow it’s history to be bulldozed.
