Architecture in the Service of Motoring

The automobile is a revealing conduit to understanding what society and lifestyle were like in the first half of the twentieth century. The automobile is part utility and part luxury. It is both a simple, practical, relatively undemanding and a hardy means of transportation, and, simultaneously, a symbol of personal freedom, mobility, a new way of conceiving time and space in the world, a convenience, and an opulent and pleasurable item of consumption.

The book was prepared as part of work on the project ‘Industrial Topography – the Adaptive Re-use of Industrial Heritage’ supported by the NAKI programme (National and Cultural Identity) of the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic and with the support of a grant from the SGS (the Student Grant Fund) of the Czech Technical University (Grant No. SGS 010-802 140).

Winternitz Bros. Mills

The publication Winternitz Bros. Mills has come out at a time when the future of this exceptional industrial heritage site, and the entire grounds of the former Pardubice Mills, is still up in the air.

The mills only recently ceased operations and the current owner is in negotiations to sell the site. The Research Centre for Industrial Heritage (VCPD) at the Faculty of Architecture of the Czech Technical University in Prague organised a workshop to explore potential re-uses for the mills, with input from students, teachers, and various experts and practicing architects working in the field of industrial heritage and heritage conversion. Simultaneously a civic initiative has emerged called ‘The Town’s Mills’ (Mlýny městu), which, with the current owner’s consent, organised a several-week festival called ‘Pardubice’s Cultural Mills’. The book documents the past and historical development of this industrial monument. It describes the technological facets of the mills’ functions, discusses more recent developments affecting the mills, and examines the capacity of the town and The Town’s Mills civic initiative to influence its future. It also presents several student projects and concepts that explore possible future functions for this site.

The Charter for the Industrial Heritage of TICCIH

The Charter for the Industrial Heritage was drawn up by the International Committee for the Conservation of the Industrial Heritage (TICCIH) and was published in 2003 in the Russian town of Nizhny Tagil. Today it represents a generally applicable and concise reference document for research projects, conservation work, heritage conservation, and the adaptive re-use or conversion of industrial structures and sites.

The basic principles for understanding industrial heritage outlined in the charter are not yet common knowledge. In an effort to promote greater awareness, the Research Centre for Industrial Heritage (VCPD) at the Faculty of Architecture of the Czech Technical University organised an internal workshop in spring 2013, during which an updated working translation of the Charter into Czech was prepared on the basis of the version published in the book Industrial Heritage Re-tooled. The TICCIH Guide to Industrial Conservation. The translation is one of the outcomes of the VCPD’s research project ‘Industrial Topography of the Czech Republic – Adaptive Re-use of Industrial Heritage’, which was conducted with the support of the Czech Ministry of Culture’s NAKI (National and Cultural Identity) applied research programme. The workshop on the Industrial Heritage Charter also drew on earlier writings and translations prepared at the Research Centre for Industrial Heritage with the participation of members of the ‘Industrial Topography’ research team (Benjamin Fragner, Vladislava Valchářová, Petr Vorlík, Lukáš Beran, Matúš Dulla, Jan Zikmund, Dita Dvořáková), along with Lenka Popelová, Věra Kučová, Jana Kotalíková, Jiří Merta, Nina Bartošová and Petr Urlich.

The working translation was published as an occasional paper to accompany a conference titled ‘A New Life for Abandoned Buildings – Vestiges of Industry’, which was held in April 2013 in Brno.
