The two projects selected for the Reuse of Modernist Buildings are examples of our way of understanding this subject. These projects
are neither typical rehabilitations, nor refurbishment, but an intense exchange between the diverse existing layers and the new ones required.

The aims of these projects focused on giving clarity to the existing facilities and removing the ambiguities which resulted from the successive additions and uses to which the building has been subjected to over time, thus enabling a clear proposal for new buildings. In these projects, the renovation and remodelling of existing structures, as well as the proposal for new constructions, was grounded on the principle of a dialogue between the existing and the new, between the past and the present.
