American adaptive reuse art spaces that inspire us

American adaptive reuse art spaces that inspire us

Before renovating our Tube Factory artspace building and as we work on expansion of our second 46,000-square-foot “Big Tube” building on the campus, we have visited many other adaptive reuse art spaces around the United States.

Many of the strategies and approaches have seen have informed and inspired our approach. This post explores these places with links to images (often taken during our research trips). We suggest visiting these art spaces!
