Revitalization and valorization of Onogošt fortress in Nikšić : master thesis
Đina Prnjat, 2021, master's thesis

Abstract: Fortress "Onogošt", known to the public simply as Bedem, is the prominent symbol of Nikšić and a valuable fragment of the cultural and historical heritage of Montenegro. In the past decade the fortress has been renovated several times, aiming to emphasize the value and importance of the old ramparts, as well as to evaluate the spectrum of possibilities of its adaptation in the context of contemporary public city space. These interventions breathed new life into the dilapidated debris, implying its transformation from a warrior fortification into a reclaimed cultural and artistic center of the city. However, this idea never fully flourished, and the current condition of the city fortress is far from imagined- neglected, crumbled and devastated. With the exception of regional music festival “Bedem fest”, a and a few minor manifestations that have only scratched the surface of its enormous potential occasionally in the past decade, there are almost no other active initiatives and this monumental space remains the silent neglected urban pocket in the heart of the city. Although still dominant and crucial in the visual perception of Nikšić, the fortress today represents essential ravaged resource of the city. The purpose of this master thesis is to restore, conserve, reconstruct and repurpose the city fortress by creating an attractive destination inside as well as the outside of the walls, which would be enjoyed by both residents and tourists. The project aims to research the potential and discover the strategy model to restore new life and impose purpose to the rapidly devastating ramparts. The renewal paradigm is researched in the course of three main segments: adaptation, revitalization and repurpose. The project aspires to preserve the existing visual identity of the city walls and raise awareness of rich cultural and historical heritage trough introducing several museums, culture facilities as well as multicultural public spaces, resulting in a prominent landmark of high visibility and the local acropolis in the revived rebranded city.

Godinje settlement - adaptive reuse and revitalization
Jovana Dragović, 2019, master's thesis

Abstract: The Master’s thesis deals with the valorization and restoration of Godinje, the first village in Montenegro with the status of immovable cultural property. The project encompasses an analysis of the present state of the cultural heritage, research of traditional architectural elements of the crmnica house, as well as the role of man in space. An important factor in the development and preservation of architecture is the awareness of space and the factors that define it. With the aim of encouraging the proper maintenance of cultural heritage, while giving purpose to certain objects, the village planning has been resolved. By emphasizing the spatial principles and traditional techniques of construction, and thus the education thereof, the value is emphasized and further development of Godinje is made possible.
Keywords: Godinje, crmnica house, spatial principles, nature and man, culture, language of architecture, cultural heritage, valorization

Between cultural and natural heritage : pluralism in planning tourism products for rescuing
Richard Ingwe, 2014, original scientific article

Abstract: The planning of tourism products in the north-central Cross River State (corresponding to ‘old Ogoja province) is examined in this study. Explained in the article are: justification of the need for undertaking community-based tourism development strategy as a means of reducing inter- regional disparity in development aroused by historical discrimination against the region through eras of Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, colonialism, and successive post-independent governments; creation of special development funds aimed at addressing challenges posed by personalization of government thereby creating governance deficits; and descriptions of the tourism potentials/resources of the north-central Cross River State. Rather than adopting the advice of tourism experts in the 1960s that African countries ought to prefer to design cultural-heritage tourism products aiming towards attracting some 145 million tourists from the United States of America (USA) who might be satiated with natural heritage tourism products offered back home. Here, it is argued here that considering myriad socio-economic-political dynamics thereafter – including anti-African/Nigerian political measures such as barring US citizens from visiting Nigeria or parts of it- there is no need concentrating on such restricted tourism products. This is justified by the fact that with nearly 170 million population –most of whom are expecting to move from poverty towards the middle class among other prosperous economic statuses and who do not need to immediately access foreign natural heritage tourism, there is need for north- central Cross River State –a region possessing diverse tourism resources to plan tourism products that seek to integrate natural heritage with the cultural varieties in order to properly capture both local and foreign tourists. Foreign tourists here covers a larger spectrum beyond US visitors including visitors from large and increasing number of member states of the United Nations.

Historic train stations in Małopolskie Province during the railroad industry regression
Tomasz Chaberko, 2008, original scientific article

Abstract: Train stations tend to be the most representative constructions of the railroad industry. In many cases they are considered as interesting transportation and architectural monuments. In Poland, where the rail network was developed mostly before World War I, they constitute the most numerous group of monuments of Poland’s industrial era. The main goal of this paper is to indicate the historic train station buildings (those dating back to the period 1847-1918) in Małopolskie Province and determine their role in the modern railroad transportation system. As a backdrop for the discussion, a few background elements are included. They are: chosen architectural hallmarks of train stations in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, selected issues concerning the railroad history of Galicia and contemporary aspects of the railroad industry’s current regression. It is in this context that the state and prospective utilization of historic rail stations are portrayed.
