Architecture Professor Presents Adaptive Reuse Research at International Conference

Assistant Professor of Architecture Francesco Cianfarani recently presented his research on the current transformation of the Evans Fintube plant in Tulsa, titled “The Evans-Fintube Building: Architecture of the Oklahoma Oil Industry.”

The presentation was focused on the redesign of the Evans building, one of the oldest and most remarkable examples of industrial archaeology and early modern architecture in the state. The building is currently at the center of a series of projects and public debates that are offering a unique opportunity to publicly discuss the topic of urban regeneration and reuse of industrial heritage in the state.

The presentation was part of the international conference hosted by Docomomo Japan. The Conference took place virtually from August 29 – September 2, 2021, under the theme “Inheritable Resilience: Sharing Values of Global Modernities.”
