Urban Design Guidelines for Victoria, published by the State of Victoria (Australia) in 2016, defines adaptability (or 'adaptive re-use') as: ‘The capacity of a building or space to respond to changing social, technological, economic and market conditions and accommodate new or changed uses.’
In January 2020 the standard ISO 20887:2020 Design for disassembly and adaptability — Principles, requirements and guidance was published where the term adaptability is defined as the: ‘ability to be changed or modified to make suitable for a particular purpose.’
