Military areas and establishments are interesting spaces for contemporary towns and cities. For example they store memories which have now been lost in the urban structure, like walls or gates, or a sense of secrecy and emptiness increased by their inaccessibility. As soon as the availability of these places starts to manifest as a concrete opportunity for redevelopment, problems of different types arise. This paper addresses important aspects of design and proposes a series of examples and references to the European context.

Keywords: Conversion of military properties; architectural design; urban transformations
