Call for Nominations: Category 9: 2013 Best Adaptive Reuse of a Building or Infrastructure

Category 9: Best adaptive reuse of a building or infrastructure.

 

Once Bandana Square was a rail shops. Now it has a Model Train Museum.

Adapting the building and reusing,  though not quite an atheneum.

 

We mourn for the architecture that was not saved,

for which no one had  creativity,

and instead was made into parking and repaved.

with the occasional periodic festivity.

 

 

But we are getting smarter

(perhaps because of less lead in the petroleum),

and now keeping a larger share of structures

which are functionally obsolete but not physical pandemonium,
