Background
CITIES’ research on the process of Industrial Renewal is rooted in the founding principle of CITIES: to explore how global urban phenomena is manifest in local contexts. One of CITIES first initiatives explored industrial renovation by pushing beyond academic language and jargon and encouraging urban explorers to tell their own stories and to share perspectives.

Through personal writings, photography and art works from Athens, London, Berlin, New York, Moscow, Malmö, Sao Paulo, Paris, Uyuni and Beijing, the collected experiences from this initiative (available online <a href="http://issuu.com/citiesthemagazine/docs/00_industrial_renewal">here</a> ) give a sense of the complexity, beauty and possibility of a wide range of approached to industrial renewal.

The collection of stories was published online in Issue 00 of CITIES magazine in 2009.
