1. Wisler, Adam. Great Places have Great Stories -Rehabilitation of the Lincoln Grant School and Randolph Park as a Multi-use Community Asset.

Degree: M. Arch., Design, Architecture, Art and Planning: Architecture, 2019, University of Cincinnati

The rehabilitation and adaptive reuse of a structure has multiple benefits, includingaesthetics, social attraction, the embodied energy of reuse, and has the potential to catalyzerefreshed community identity, historical memory, and cultural meaning. This thesis, focusing onthe adaptive reuse of the Lincoln Grant School in Covington, Kentucky, and the rehabilitation ofadjacent Randolph Park, will demonstrate all of these potentials. Located in the LickingRiverside historic district, the building stands as a symbol of the segregation period, when it wasthe “black only” high school in the area. This historic significance can be both preserved andamplified through an adaptive use such as the Family Scholar House (affordable housing forsingle parents getting a post-secondary education), a rehabilitated theater providing a place forthe community to gather for arts, meetings and entertainment. It will provide the basis for thebuilding to be rehabilitated for a multi-purpose adaptive reuse incorporating community interestssuch as gathering, meeting, and performance, while preserving its heritage. The rehabilitatedpark’s new amenities will include a phased community and recreation center, improved ballfields, playground, skate park and picnic areas, and a connection to the Licking RiversideGreenway. It will revitalize the park with amenities and memories, telling the story of the schooland park’s rich history and providing gathering, recreational, athletic and educationalopportunities. This thesis research will highlight 5 ways that issues and processes common in restoringand reusing a community asset can be maximized, including economic and social value, strongaesthetics, refreshed meanings, iconic character, and catalytic impact on the surrounding area.This thesis design explores the potential to revive and celebrate historic assets, while reintroducing the arts and community history, meaning, and identity as a viable economic driverfor the area and contribute to a sustainable community Advisors/Committee Members: Tilman, Jeffrey (Committee Chair).
