Project idea

There are areas of abandoned industrial buildings, housing for workers and workshops in the old city center. Because of the very dense city structure close to the river banks people are moving out and services with them. With diverse intervention municipality is trying to attract people in the city.
Project idea is to change old empty manufacturing building to a contemporary library together with other complementary culture program and bring social life of citizens back into town as a union of public program and is promoting revitalization of the old city center. Main idea focuses on importance of the heritage and the fact that the building is located in historically protected city center.
