REmix gives specifc solution to particular situations: in this context, the former Merlettificio Turck becomes the “pilot plan” able to test and refine the design choices that shape the strategy of REmix. The following can be considered as the alphabet of this new urban language:

RE (generation) – concrete scenarios of transformation, started by private capital and (de) generate in public investment (mixed) for parks, gardens, urban gardens and civic centers.

MIX -  the greatest possible number of types programmatic context (ex. Residential, productive)
