INDU.PIK: Models of revitalisation of industrial cultural heritage objects - exhibition
MMC Kibla cordially invited you to the opening of the INDU.PIK exhibition on Tuesday, 22nd of August 2006 at 8pm that took place in Kibar.
Industrial culture heritage is a new dimension which is slowly getting established in the Slovenian and European realm, bringing new possibilities and opportunities. Revitalisation of old buildings serves to preserve the engineering and architectural heritage of the modern history of industrial and coalmining regions. A new, innovative environment is being created, expanding the concept of the cultural and tourist centre, and offering possibilities for the development of service industries and employment opportunities. from the project Industrial architecture, which has co-shaped our towns and settlements over the past two hundred years, is undoubtedly a vital part of our past. During that time, industry was the basis of economic and social development, and an important co-designer of new aspects of our identity. Abroad, there have been many successful restorations of important abandoned historic industrial areas, which have in turn become the epicentres of activity and development of new, non-industrial enterprises. Highlighting the industrial identity and heritage is the starting point for the revitalisation of industrial centres taking part in the INDU.PIK project.
