Abstract

The objective of this thesis is to set an example of the preservation of old, vacant and architecturally rich buildings, for cities which possess architecture worth preserving through adaptive reuse. The city of memphis is privileged to have large number of buildings which are suitable for adaptive reuse. The new program proposed through this thesis for the Tennessee Brewery will be an impetus for redevelopment which would put the brewery back in use after three long decades and will be a key to open this magnificient architecture to the city again. The brewery that remains today was built in 1890 and is unchanged from that time. The revitalization will help in the overall developmet of the neighbourhood by connecting the brewery precinct to the Arts District. The revitalization would set an example for the other abandoned buildings which are, architecturally and culturally, a treasure which the city should preserve.
