Transforming existing architecture and assigning it a new use for which it was not conceived entails an exhaustive process of historical, technical and functional exploration. The undoubted sustainability component of such interventions, often on disused buildings, can be summed up in a clear and concise maxim: "the greenest building is the one that is already built".

Through projects of various scales, often surprising but always sensitive to the historical context in which they are situated, A SECOND LIFE FOR BUILDINGS illustrates the interesting process of reconversion of built architecture.
