When dealing with the existing stock of buildings, energy strategies usually focus on the improvement of their performance by means of technical upgrading. However, taking architecture as a resource helps raising another question: to what extent the embodied energy in already built structures could be a key factor to develop sustainable strategies based on an adaptive reuse and a subsequent extension of their lifespan. The aim of this paper is to discuss on the benefits and architectural implica...
