PHooEY Architects are sustainable building professionals concerned about sustainability, upcycling, energy efficiency, and the recapture and reuse of materials. Emma Young demonstrates through her practice’s projects: the reprogramming of existing developments, their adaptation and their re-use. Her presentation reminds us to not start our design with a clean sheet but to see the potential in the existing and to retain what is possible.
