Fit for purpose: The transformation of heritage buildings to meet 21st Century needs
Join us for a special online conversation with a panel of experts from key Victorian cultural, civic and community institutions, who will discuss the transformation of heritage buildings to meet 21st Century needs.
At the time a building is being designed, how often do we know all the functions it will fulfill during its life? To remain ‘fit for purpose’ buildings are often required to evolve in response to changing needs, a process that seeks to balance philosophical concerns with practical considerations, and even community expectations.
This special online presentation, presented in conjunction with the Australian Heritage Festival, brings together a panel of experts representing key Victorian cultural, community and civic institutions, to discuss the transformation of heritage buildings to meet 21st Century needs and how this process can enrich architectural design and building quality.
Mr Dean Lee, CEO, Shrine of Remembrance
