Abstract (in English)

The historical and social meaning of industries in modern cities, explains their importance as a cultural patrimony within a society developed and enclosed by work, technological developments and the forces of industrial production. This work presents the case of the Fundidora de Monterrey Park as the largest iron and steel production industrial complex, in the north of Mexico. Now, after its closing, it changes its activities and introduces new uses, to offer in its original location, a cultural space that commemorates its history and recreates the iron and steel industrial process which was the vocation of its origin. The restoration and reuse of the factories, offices and furnaces, offers a new sense of place that allows to remember, the people and the events that comprise its past, establishing a relation between the material and the immaterial, in search of the reconstruction of the spirit of place.
