With a rising number of empty spaces in our city centres, architects have to come up with new smart and creative approaches. Vacant, old and derelict buildings are not a waste! In most cases, they have all it takes to accommodate a second life. Giving those spaces a new function is not only more sustainable, but also might cost less, have bigger social impact, and comes always with a more optimised and innovative use of space. To be able to recognise and imagine the future value of a vacant shop, an old apartment or an underused warehouse is a skill that makes my profession interesting.
