Beyond Warehouse banner

This Omeka-driven collection is an outgrowth of a 2014 National Council on Public History Working Group. The website collects and displays projects that meet the “innovative” criteria of the group:

  • Beyond well-established reuse practices such as transforming warehouses into residential lofts
  • Embracing standards of enviromental sustainabilty
  • The promotion of social justice or the consideration of disadvantaged communities—either through historical interpretation or the contemporary reuse of the place
  • Involving “less-than charismatic” or vernacular architecture

Guest contributions to the collection are encouraged!
