Urbanism Lab, 40, Elgin Street, 2nd Floor

Building on the success of previous ideas forums, this will be an opportunity for those working in heritage conservation in the National Capital Region to come together and continue the conversation — with each other, with our distinguished speakers and with NCC staff. In addition to Ignite sessions that will bring forth important considerations for adaptive reuse projects, our partners will showcase innovative projects relating to the following themes: values beyond traditional heritage values, adaptive reuse and sustainability, and the economics of adaptive reuse.
