Thesis: Conversion of industrial arch.
Hello everyone,

I have found this site just today and I was overwhelmed by the number of interesting subjects and even more interesting and instructing answers or suggestions.

I like the philosophical approach most advisors give, and I would like to take advantage of this trend in your advice.

I am starting to work on my Diploma Thesis, that is, the conversion of a former tobacco factory for the purposes of a University Library in Bratislava, Slovak Republic.

At the moment I am searching for different examples of reconversions of tobacco or other factories/storehouses from around the world. Later I will concentrate on designing and re-converting the factory itself.

I will be very grateful for any comments or examples you can give me on this topic, as they will extent my understanding of this topic.

There was a very interesting conversion of a tobacco warehouse in the London Docklands area. :)))
