Philippe Saad, Principal, DiMella Shaffer | Housing & Adaptive Reuse for the Community

Monday, March 18 | 2:30-3:50 PM
Shiffman 202 (second floor)

As one typology of architecture gets overlaid and reinvented to serve a new use and user
group, the architect and owner can work hand in hand to support the community and ensure
that the adaptive reuse of existing structures function as places of inclusion.

Philippe Saad, AIA and Principal at DiMella Shaffer will discuss examples of adaptive reuse in Boston including The Pryde, an LGBTQ affordable housing community in Hyde Park, and Blessed Sacrament affordable housing in Jamaica Plain.
