“Remix” as defined by Mirriam-Webster dictionary is “a variant of an original recording (as of a song)  made by rearranging or adding to the original.” We have more information today than ever before because of the emergence of the internet. The digital tools available to us today creates new possibilities that did not exist in the past. The remix is one of the most important and predominant of these new possibilities. In this book we will explain many things dealing with  the remix theory. We will describe the correlation bet- ween Irony (studio topic) and remix. We will begin  with a basic yet necessary introduction on the history and the relevant terms (such as reinterpretation,  collage, and copy/paste). Then, the remix will be de- fined with the help of various case studies (in art, architecture, and music). Finally, we will answer the  questions we set out do discover: Is originality existent? If not, then everything must be considered a  remix (extended remix—see chapter 9). Can we call the remixes of today an artistic style or epoch? What about those remixes that were created using digital tools like artificial intelligence? And the final question is: Can anyone be an architect in the modern age?
