    Starting from its privileged location [near the financial and administrative core of the city], the purpose of this project is to link this unused territory to the urban circuit of the city by functionally reactivating the complex. The converted area proposes to complement these by inserting the culture factor. Museum, cultural center, music hall, library, music conservatory, multifunctional expo/shopping hall, youth hostel, restaurants and dwellings are meant to replace the industrial facilities. All these are tied together by an animated public space which acts as a turntable for the surrounding functions.
