Abstract

<p>The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the adaptive reuse of saw-tooth roof factories in Kiryu City from the aspect of the preservation of regional characteristics and local industry. Kiryu City has had an active textile industry since the Edo era and 272 saw-tooth roof factories were found by a research in 2005, some in operation and some in adaptive reuse. Currently 25 factories are found to be reused in new various functions. The evaluation criteria were determined based on historical and industrial features of Kiryu City, and organized into 3 perspectives: macro, meso and micro. The macro perspective criterion focuses on whether the location of the textile factory is in the area facing a river. The meso perspective criterion examines whether 3 facilities (saw-tooth roof factory, dwelling and warehouse) are still existing in one site. The micro perspective criteria examine whether the room is kept void, and whether textile products are being used. The results of the evaluation show that the current adaptive reuse cases display the characteristics of Kiryu City only to a limited extent. Therefore, integrated plans covering all three perspectives are needed, to better preserve the regional characteristics and local industry to the future.</p>
