Architectural Preservation and Adaptive Use
Architectural preservation can be viewed as the prevention of the destruction and
degradation of architecture. In regard to Adaptive use, this has to do with the reusing of buildings that are existing, whether historic or otherwise, for purposes other than they had been originally indented.
Aside from government-implemented policies and work with affiliated organizations to facilitate preservation efforts, independent organizations also assist with the facilitation of architectural preservation and adaptive use efforts.
