Abstract


The post-industrial landscape in Romania has left many "wounds", most of which have not been cured, but others have benefited from a new chance through reconversion. In industrial cities, such as the city of Turda in Cluj County, some former industrial parks have received a new approach by investing to integrate them into the urban landscape. This is the case of the former Beer Factory in Turda, retrofitted after the 90's to the Ratiu Foundation for Democracy. A team of landscaping and horticulture students from the U.A.S.V.M. Cluj-Napoca took over the site and proposed several landscaping options and in the period between July 2015 - June 2018 they actually implemented a small urban square, giving the city a green space materialized in a harmonious ensemble, designed on the basis of a theme that was subordinated to the memory of the profile of the former beer factory in Turda. At present, the arranged square faces a new challenge: relocation to a new emplacement.
