dc.description.abstractThis thesis examines the potential for the adaptive reuse of post-industrial infrastructure located in or near rural towns. Many of these towns experience diminished industry and are directly affected, both socially and economically. The ambition of the thesis is to question the amalgamation of these restricted sites into the public sphere by taking on new programmatic life. The strategy will be tested within the context of Hantsport, a Nova Scotia community located on the Avon river, adjoining the Bay of Fundy. As a historically industrial town, it has seen various transitions in industry such as ship building, forestry and gypsum mining. Currently, almost all of the industries have been decommissioned and have left Hantsport in a state of uncertainty. Although the thesis will be situated locally within Hantsport, the strategy will remain applicable for many towns globally which have experienced a similar decline in industry.en_US
