  • Identify a converted, adapted or extended well-known building in the United Kingdom. Briefly explain the transformation of the building to the current use including the location.
  • Identify and discuss various factors that must have influenced the adapted, converted, or extended building.
  • Critically identify and explain the structural and non-structural constraints that need to be taken care of in other to meet the new purpose. Give reasons why any specific structural and non-structural element will need to be reused.
  • Briefly explain why you think the new use is reasonable and economically viable.
