Deconstructive re-use is a proposed strategy to meet the spatial needs of society in times of financial omission. As the crisis hit the profession of the architect appeared to have become superfluous. Work is scarce, as are raw materials and affordable housing, therefor challenges for the architect are not scarce at all. This research investigates the possibilities to regain control on the built environment, considering the current financial market and the increasing vacancy in mono functional areas in a rapid changing culture of progress, waste and depletion.
