Sara Goldfarb Langmead - In her Master of Architecture thesis, Sustainable Heritage: Retrofitting Historic Buildings for Improved Environmental Performance, Sara Goldfarb Langmead developed a set of principles for sustainable adaptive reuse and applied those principles to the design of a New American Center in the former Weavers and Dyers Building in Silver Spring. Langmead considered sustainability broadly, encompassing considerations of community, landscape, architectural heritage, energy, water, materials, and economic feasibility. The thesis offers both a proposition for the adaptive reuse of a significant Silver Spring building and a set of principles broadly applicable to any adaptive reuse project.
