2003 (English)In: Building and Re-building Sustainable Communities: Reports from the Superbs project / [ed] Lars Rydén, Uppsala: Baltic University Press , 2003, 1, 57-59 p.Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
Industrial development has suffered particularly from the change to a market economy system. The article describes the industrial area of Kekk in Tartu which was important for the construction industry. The current re-use is seen as a simple example of practical sustainability, where the absense of a strong municipal intervention and initiative from private owners are the important factors. Former industrial buildings may be the only possible facilities for enterprises that do not necessarily need or cannot invest in their surrounding environment.
