|Abstract: ||Currently the majority of buildings are designed and constructed as bespoke creations
to suit a particular use at a certain time, with little thought for the future. The Adaptable Futures
project, introduced in this paper, aims to facilitate the development of adaptable buildings in the
UK that take account of an often uncertain future. This paper gives a brief overview of the project
and then goes on to describe the two industrial case studies being used as the main sources of data
collection for the project. These are a pre-configured concept, Newways, developed by
Pharmaceutical organization GSK and a re-configurable concept, Multispace, created by architect
3DReid. Findings from a recent workshop looking at adaptable buildings are then presented.|
