How can we build a sustainable future in a time of climate change and dwindling resources? As our spatial needs begin to evolve more rapidly, architects are exploring ingenious ways in which to reuse and recycle existing buildings; resulting in a stunning transformation of our existing urban fabric.

Building for Change collects the strategies of reuse together, demonstrating their power for change through groundbreaking projects from some of the world’s leading architects. From waste repurposed as construction materials, to buildings reworked with canny spatial interventions, and modular structures designed to be dismantled, discover how the architecture of creative reuse is helping us build a better tomorrow.


Ruth Lang is an architect, curator, writer, and teacher at the Royal College of Art and the London School of Architecture. Her work explores how contemporary architectural practice can respond to issues of diversity and the Climate Emergency. Ruth has curated exhibitions for the V&A Museum and the Jerwood Gallery, and she writes for FRAME, Architectural Review, and Modernist Magazine.
