Because it has been realized that this concept is a good solution for the problem of unlimited consumption increasing needs. This study thus concentrates on the importance of revitalising the concept and intends emphasize the importance of its applicability in architecture. Therefore it hopes to identify the reuse as a concept and explore its principles under ping the concept in relation to architecture.
