Brief description: “This presentation uses completed projects in Detroit, Lansing, Jackson and Ypsilanti to illustrate the potential for the adaptive use of historic buildings to transform seemingly hopeless buildings into valuable community assets. The presentation considers not only the success of the architecture, but also the process including how architects envision the often hidden potential of obsolete buildings and how they assist the community and developers in realizing that potential. The presenter, Lis Knibbe, AIA is an architect with over 35 years experience adapting historic buildings for new uses. Her projects have won numerous state and national awards for historic preservation, and awards from the AIA Detroit and AIA Michigan.” CES: 2 LUs
