dc.description.abstract The propose of this thesis was to develop an adaptive reuse proposal for the Wendell L. Willkie High School in Elwood, Indiana. The building, an excellent example of Richardsonain Romanesque Style Architecture, has been vacant since 1973. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places because of its architectural and historical significance, the building merits the attention to develop an appropriate renovation scheme.The proposal includes: the building’s history; a written and photographic description of the existing conditions; the adaptive reuse proposal consisting of text, architectural drawings and the related cost estimates; a series of case studies on similar projects; and the economic incentives associated with historic preservation.The proposal renovation is designed to comply with local building odes and State and Federal standards for rehabilitation. It is hoped that this study will emphasize the value and potential of this magnificent architectural and historical landmark by showing that preservation is a practical and economical alternative in today’s building industry.
