Abstract

Fikfak, A. & Suau, C. ‘Reinventing The Post-Industrial Voids in the Balkans’ Grand Paysage: Transformations of Brownfields in Slovenia’ (November, 2014); BrownInfo Conference, Banja Luka University, Bosnia and Herzegovina: http://agf.unibl.org/160/browninfo, (published paper/oral presentation)The remaking of post-industrial large areas, such as ports, landfills or factories, involve substantial alterations of the land. They are mostly based on pragmatic principles of rebuilding and transformation. How can the European ‘Grand Paysage’ become an instrument of memory whilst open to changes and inventions? Brownfields (BF) – vacant, idle and toxic voids – could be monitored and treated through thermal satellite imaging and urban landscape recovery strategies. The European Landscape Convention (Florence, 2000) is a prospective design instrument to guide regenerative strategies in European brownfields like Barcelona expo-parks or Zollverein in Essen. This paper will reflect on alternative design concepts, processes and visions in deteriorated brownfields of Ljubljana and Koper, Slovenia. The core design strategy will be to ‘protect the destruction’ by renewing the sites while preserving their uniqueness of structures and forms.
