The "IAM group" (Investigation in Mediterranean Architecture), School of Architecture La Salle - URL, Barcelona, has developed a research project entitled "Strategies for Sustainable Regeneration of Touristic Settlements in the Mediterranean coast". The aim of this investigation is to establish sustainable recycling rules to improve the development of abandoned or obsolete public spaces and buildings on the Catalan seafront. In its aim to restore the coastal heritage, the study focuses on the Modernist factory of Anis del Mono as a case study, and proposes the optimization of existing facilities and an extension of the program with new public uses. The operation aims to establish an open dialogue with the environment, improving the relation with the sea and the city, becoming a reference on the city shoreline. The results of successfully completed architectonic projects can provide us with some universal guidelines that can be used as parameters in similar cases along the whole coast. These transformation strategies are the final goal of our research and are included at the end of the presentation.
