Within the IBA project spaces, but also beyond such contiguous urban areas, the IBA is shifting the focus to large buildings and building complexes that have lost their original purpose.

What is more, their revitalisation can blaze a trail for the careful use of space and energy. In view of ever shorter utilisation cycles, the task of waking up those "sleeping giants" is of immense importance.
