The issue Reclaim - Remediate Reuse Recycle interprets and compares actions extracted from the projects and classifies them into three Re- processes:
Remediate: acting on the territory
Reuse: acting on the building
Recycle: acting on the material

REMEDIATE. 30 processes on the territory (64 pages)
This is a process which is applied at the territory scale and the main aim is environmental regeneration. Even though the term remediate was used in the eighties in interventions carried out on territories with industrial use, in this chapter it is also applied to processes taking place in derelict urban spaces. The connotations of the term remediate with reparation imply the atonement for actions committed by reinstating existing values, in the case of the natural environments, or by recovering uses, in the case of the urban environments.

REUSE. 42 processes on the building (118 pages)
This is a process which is applied at the plot or building scale and its main aim is to take advantage of grey energy, that is the energy consumed during the construction of that existing. Reusing structures or infrastructures is a way of economising on resources and avoiding land consumption. Reuse is based on reprogramming the uses rather than on refurbishing the building. The main aim of the interventions is not to preserve the heritage but to take advantage of that already in place to develop new functions. The Reuse processes are applied not only to solids but also to the voids between them.

RECYCLE. 10 processes on the material (28 pages)
The recycling process is applied at the scale of the elements and materials which were found either inside or outside the intervention environment. In some cases, this involves an off-site industrial transformation and transforms the original material by adding properties. In other cases, a re-allocation of uses takes place for certain elements with slight on-site modifications. Both options aim to make the most of resources and to cut down on waste. Nonetheless, the recycle processes have generated a, virally growing, associated aesthetic trend which threatens to distort the initial aims.

With this start to the Reclaim series, a+t interprets the works analysed and organizes its discourse on the basis of Re- actions, using these actions to create a body of knowledge applicable to any project.

Reclaim has the environmental sense to reclaim the territory, the objects, the infrastructures and the materials yet it is also a call to reclaim dignity and citizen rights. It is a wake-up call to morally reclaim society using the Re- processes as atonement.
