Post-industrial parks – places of protection and revitalisation of industrial areas

Monika J. Latkowska

Abstrakt

As a result of technological development and economic changes in Europe in the 2nd half of the 20th century, many industrial centres have been closed. Actions aimed at – on the one hand – reclaiming these areas, giving them new functions (areas of recreation and contact with nature), and – on the other hand – referring to the tradition of the site, preserving traces of industrial activity and ‘genius loci’, as well as the virtues of industrial nature, have been undertaken. Cultural, social and ecological aspects of the operation of post-industrial parks with model examples: Landschaftspark Duisburg-Nord and Natur Park Schöneberger Südgelände are presented in this paper, with special attention paid to protection of the industrial landscape and natural environment carried out there.
