Join the crowdsourcing project, collect and share successful examples of built heritage re-use: cases when someone was able to find a suitable new function for a valuable building or building complex which now benefits the local or broader community. Some of these are officially protected monuments while others are simply loved by the locals and visitors. If you know about such a site in your neighborhood or you see something you like during your travels, please share it with us and contribute to the collection.
