Adaptive reuse: defining new purpose for existing buildings
Ever since buildings have been built, they have been repurposed. How can existing building assets remain relevant in a changing world?
In this issue, we ask if wellbeing is about productivity or looking after people, take a look around HSBC's Birmingham office and much more... Each one of our covers is unique – including our logo.
