Nader Sayadi is a doctoral candidate at the UWM School of Architecture and  Urban Planning.  He is also working as an intern with Milwaukee’s Historic Preservation Commission.   Adaptive reuse of historic buildings and spaces is a topic as old as it is new because humans have been re- purposing structures as long as they have been building them!  Nader will give us some good examples of local successes and losses.
