The transformation of unused areas and buildings is currently the most important principle of spatial production. The conversion of railways, military and industrial areas and the reorganization of existing residential areas as well as the handling of existing buildings is one of the most important practices for architects and urban developers.
The fallow downtown areas and the existing buildings have great potential for the origin of a compact and sustainable city. The functional separation of the areas of life is obsolete. The idea of a maximum mixed city replaces the idea of zoning.
In addition to housing, services and culture, we also want to reconsider the small-scale productive economy, manufacturing and repair industry as part of urban life.
