Classic buildings, rather than becoming outmoded or stagnant, can be remade when tenants bring creative, fresh ideas into existing spaces. In what ways are structures taking on a second life through adaptive reuse? What benefits does this approach offer, as compared to relying on new construction?  How are high-tech offices well-suited to inhabit converted spaces?
