Routes 1&2 Industrial Heritage
CULTURAL INITIATIVE FOR THE DESIGN OF WALKING ROUTES IN THE INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE OF CARABANCHEL, MADRID. 2020,
The purpose of these guidebooks is to serve as graphic and documentary support for two tours around the Industrial Heritage of Carabanchel, called Routes 01 and 02, which focus on highlighting the area of the old ISO Polygon, the name coming from the factory where the former Isocarro was produced in the 1950s.
In this area, a series of buildings originally dedicated to industrial activities survive today, inserted in an increasingly residential urban fabric, and whose spaces have welcomed in the last years new uses related to creative industries and innovation.
The selection of buildings follows several criterias such as the fact of presenting a series of common architectural aspects, a certain typological innovation in their conception, or being an example of the regeneration of old productive structures into new "social condensers", where productive uses are combined with new uses linked to music, art, culture, design and arts&crafts.
The guides provide original documentary material prepared specifically for the occasion from the documentary research of historical collections and the municipal archive.
These guide books are the first of a series that will explore and value some of the industrial complexes that have had their relevance within the development of the urban, economic and social fabric of Madrid during the second middle of the 20th century.
