Led by Seville, between 2003 and 2005, REVITA has established innovative schemes for territorial spatial planning and action in obsolete industrial areas of the Atlantic Arc. This project, funded by INTERREG IIIB Atlantic Area, had the objectives of economic revival and reuse of urban areas. The project offered innovative approaches through the delivery of three pilot projects (process, urban design and functional renovation) a methodology based on “action-research” which analyzed Atlantic experiences for industrial revival:
  • Pilot project on correct use of the process at the local, regional, and national levels.
  • ·Pilot project in urban transformation of industrial space.
  • ·Pilot project in functional renovation of industrial space (for companies, technology, and environmental management).
  • Each of these projects touches on the synergies generated in rural and urban areas, because analysis is done on experimental projects completed both in city centres and in their surrounding metropolitan environment.
