The Process of Transformation of Industrial Heritage: Strengths and Weaknesses

Högberg, Anders LU (2011) In Museum International 63(1-2). p.34-42
Abstract
How can revealing the past at historic sites benefit our society? This question has been discussed recurrently over the years within heritage studies and heritage practices; the suggested answers are many. This text analyses what has been remembered and forgotten in an urban development process, when the previously industrial area of Lomma Eternit in south Sweden was turned into a luxury residential area. The result shows that the visualization of industrial heritage as a result of the cultural heritage practise at the site, have created a place which today is highly appreciated, but is also conflict generating.
