Rosén, Rebecka, 2009. Försvinn. Påminn. Eller återvinn? : om det industriella kulturarvets framtid genom Norra Sorgenfri. First cycle, G2E. Alnarp: SLU, Landscape Architecture (until 121231)



This essay deals with the industrial past, present and future and begins with the impact and importance the industrial revolution has had on us humans, socially, economically and structurally.

Today's society has developed from industrial production of goods to the production of services but the industrial sites remains. The essay examines issues concerning the protection of the industrial environment, their status as a cultural heritage, what is done with our industrial heritage and the opportunities it has for the future.

Malmö has a great industrial history and now one of the cities oldest industrial sites, the north of Sorgenfri, will be transformed. The essay compares the plan with guidelines for future development from the Town Building Office with an antiquarian investigation for the same area. The comparison shows that the old buildings will be seen with great respect and as a resource for the future. New buildings will be mixed with the older ones that will accommodate new functions. A further investigation about the spaces between the buildings and what kind of value they have in order to carry on the industrial heritage is needed.

The reason to keep post industrial sites can be either historical, aesthetic, economic, experiences, pedagogical, identity or sustainable. There are several strategies to keep the industry and the essay deals with the aspects of conservation, reuse and new functions, visualization, preservation, documentation, or just leave the site to nature, which in the essay is called ruin romance.

To be able to make decisions for the future, we need to understand our history. We need to use all strategies to save the industrial heritage in order to satisfy people's different needs. At the same time it is impossible to keep a certain period of time when everything is in constant change.
