Now one great example of Obsolescence in Architecture is in Portland State University's campus. When PSU expands they typically retrofit a existing building within the area to meet there needs. Shattuck hall is one of those great examples. This building was build in 1915 as an elementary school. In 2008 it was remodeled for PSU and now holds the PSU Architecture program. This building and its inhabitance are helping promote and teach Obsolescence from within. This is how
Obsolescence can be taught and can be learned, through our great examples right in front of us.
The way future Architects will eventfully be forced to think is longer term, beyond the life of its original owner. It must not only meet the requirements from one owner but must be flexible enough to allow for many new inhibitors throughout the full life of the building.
