The present era is in many respects a critical one, as views on the value of industrial objects and public opinion about the conservation of such objects are changing. What have we ourselves already destroyed? What will yet be destroyed by others? The hope of conservation lies in adaptive re-use. But re-use as what? As a museum, housing, or office space, or with a new production function? The contributors to this publication ask these and other questions and attempt to offer some answers and possible solutions.
The publication was prepared by Benjamin Fragner and Vladislava Valchářová in cooperation with Lukáš Beran, Jan Zikmund, and Monika Klimentová, and was published in conjunction with the Technical Monuments Committee of the Czech Chamber of Certified Engineers and Technicians and the Czech Union of Civil Engineers, the International Visegrád Fund, and the British Council.
