Abstract [en]

On river Danube in Belgrade, Serbia, abandoned coal power plant Power and Light and the surrounding historical industrial zone have been laying in shadows for decades, waiting to be reconnected to the city life.

 This project deals with the revitalization of the old power plant giving it a new function – a school of architecture.

As the use for which the building was build is so vastly different from the function of a school, one of the main points dealt with in the proposal is reconciling the existing structure and the new program. This challenge is addressed through working with the building, rather than against is - recognizing existing spatial qualities and seeing how they can be utilized in the new program.

 Alongside developing the program for the building itself, the project gives a schematic proposal for future development of the industrial zone as a campus for the city’s growing university. 

Abstract [sv]

Vid floden Donau i Belgrad, Serbien, det övergivna kolkraftverk Kraft och Ljus och det omkringliggande historiska industriområdet had varit dolt i skuggor under årtionden, väntandes på att åter bli anslutet till staden.

 Det här projektet behandlar förnyelsen av det gamla kolkraftverket genom att ge det en hel ny funktion i form av en skola för arkitektur.

Eftersom ursprungliga användandet av byggnaden skiller sig så väsentligt mycket från en skola blir huvuduppgiften att anpassa programmet till byggnadens befintliga struktur. Utmaningen hanteras genom att jobba med byggnaden och se potentialen hos dess existerande utrymmen och hur dessa kan användas i det nya programmet.

 Jämt med att utveckla programmet för byggnaden i sig ger projektet ett schematisk förslag för användandet av industri området som ett campus för stadens växande universitet.
