Abstract (in English)

The period from the end of the 19th century onwards characterizes the intensive development of processing industry and plants connected to building the utility network in Zagreb (Croatia). The majority of all industrial complexes regarded as heritage sites are nowadays located in the wider city center area and are commonly considered valuable cultural and development potential. Case studies presented in the paper provide a brief insight into the construction history of industrial facilities, application of the legal protection system in practice and management challenges in general. Due to reckless and hasty reuse of former industrial zones, some heritage structures have been endangered by the interests of high-profit making real estates investments. Despite legal protection, the lack of efficient control in the protective measures implementation has led to neglect and decay of listed buildings or even deliberate exposing to damage. The City authorities are decisive, liable and the most influential component in the process of heritage preservation as well as the creation of future directions for changing the perspectives of the industrial legacy. In 2009 Zagreb City Museum launched the project Zagreb Industrial Heritage: History, State of Affairs, Outlook, aiming to research aftermath of the industrialization, process that crucially impacted urban development and social changes in the Modern and Contemporary era. The root intentions were raising the awareness, promotion and public presentation of the legacy of industry, as well as the stimulation of rethinking the heritage management models to be applied to valuable industrial buildings. Project goals, methodology, activities and achievements are respectively presented in the paper. This paper was presented during the 2nd International Symposium on Cultural Heritage and Legal Issues, organized in October 2015 by ICOMOS Slovenia with the support of the Council of Europe, the Institute for the Protection of Cultural heritage in Slovenia, the Slovenian Ministry of Culture and TICCIH Slovenia.
