ASTRA Study is to be a feasibility study on the potential creative upcycling of some of the valuable post-mining structures which may then lead to searching public/private funding to design, plan and execute their upcycling.
Its main innovative dimension is that of process, as the study will strive to outline a coherent, potentially universally-applicable revitalisation standard through a 4-step structure:
Technological and economic change will entail social change.
European case studies in Spain, Poland and Italy on the revitalisation of post-industrial complexes related to the development of creative industries.
Conclusions will be drawn from Phase 2 case studies.
