Synopsis:

The Czech Republic was the most industrialized area of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, so it can show off not only by a large number of chimneys, but even by the most sophisticated chimneys, by the quality of their architecture, which often surpassed the purpose and function. Today are old chimneys witnessing a historical turning point. Industry in its traditional form declined and chimneys together with its factory silently watching the transformation of land from the traditional manufacturing to logistics. And one question arises. Will this magnificent heritage survive our present time, which is often unregulated and economic interests affected cleaning the land from factories? The course shows examples of real options and ways how unnecessary chimneys can get a new function and that their demolition is not the only possible solution.
