Industrial topography / Cultural clusters / Czech Republic – Europe

The publication focuses on selected examples of conversions of industrial buildings or entire complexes that have been transformed for the needs of cultural institutions. Forty examples present the situation in the Czech Republic and Europe, with an emphasis on Norway and Iceland. The selection includes a diverse range of approaches, scales, degree of input from contemporary architecture, private and public projects, projects now seen as iconic or initiatory, and relatively recent ventures, some even before their completion. The actual selections are introduced by essays by theorists who have long been involved in the subject.
