Abstract English

This exhibition features two projects that focus on the relevance and role of architectural preservation and adaptive re-use. The author looks at two case study projects in the USA – one a historic former prison on the east coast, and one a traditional Native American community in the south-west – and argues for a preservation focused on contemporary issues and social relevance rather than on a specific period of historical significance.
