PLANNING THROUGH A PRISM OF INDIVIDUAL INTERESTS: HISTORICAL EVENTS DEFINING THE AREA OF BRATISLAVA’S FORMER KEY INDUSTRIAL ZONE
Languages of publication
This study aims to uncover the background of a former key industrial zone of Bratislava that was developed not only in proximity to the Danube, but also relatively close to the historical centre. It was flood area at the time, considered peripheral with an unfavourable reputation, separated by railway lines from the city, with winds blowing southeast – away from populated areas – thus making it a seemingly ideal place for industry. However, a current perspective – when just a fraction of historical buildings remain, and are surrounded by new high-rise structures, and with society familiar with industrial contamination – offers an opportunity to look more closely at past planning processes, as they might be more relevant to present-day decision-making than we might have thought.
