In an economy of increasing scarcity, rehabilitation and reuse of historic fabric will become more and more necessary. SLICE is a novel adaptive reuse strategy for large, underused buildings designed to bridge the gap between abandonment and full rehabilitation. It uses small, strategic occupations to preserve a building’s prominence and value while making positive urban contributions. This design research project, inspired by a historic building in downtown Providence, was supported by a 2018 grant from the James Marston Fitch Charitable Foundation.
