ELIGIBLE FOR 1 AIA LU/HSW
Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu of Neri&Hu Design and Research Office will discuss radical reuse. Based in Shanghai, the city’s cultural, urban, and historic contexts function as a point of departure for design inquiries that span across a wide spectrum of scales. An early project completed in 2010, Vertical Lane House, draws from the rich experience of a typical Shanghai longtang to transform a 1930s army building into a boutique hotel. More recently the office converted a pre-industrial “urban village” into a high-end guesthouse. These and other adaptive reuse projects will be the focus of their presentation, called Ruinophilia.
