Car sharing services, electric vehicles and autonomous driving are reshaping the automobile industry. These advancements, focus mainly on vehicle innovation and its accompanying policies, neglecting consideration for how our built environment will accommodate these future develop-ments.

The methods of adaptive reuse, can provide responsive and considerate solutions, to keep such facilities relevant.
