On 17-27 October Oxford Brookes were featured at the event entitled ‘Hartera/Rijeka: What Next?’ in Rijeka, Croatia.

The joint exhibition showcases the work of students from Oxford Brookes’, International Architectural Regeneration and Development (IARD) programme.

Dr Tamara Rogic from Delft Technical University coordinated the event in order to present area-based regeneration strategies and architectural regeneration proposals for the Hartera paper factory in Rijeka.

Other works were presented by students from the University of Rijeka, the University of Zagreb, Croatia and Delft Technical University, Netherlands.

Speaking about the event Dr Aylin Orbasli, Reader in Architectural Regeneration at Oxford Brookes School of Architecture commented, “The student projects were well received by the local municipality and owners of the site. It demonstrates a broad range of options for re-using the redundant industrial buildings and a way forward for the site as a whole.
