The aim of the dissertation is to investigate the role of Industrial architecture in facilitating emergent functions through adaptive re-use of discarded spaces that will demonstrate low energy architecture, energy production and social integration.

The function of the production place in the city is to define production so that it will:

  • Emphasize the community over the individual
  • Stimulate production to steer away from the concept of being a linear process that is focused on the product, to that of a cyclical process that imitate the concept of an ecosystem
  • Work with existing energy
  • Establish emerging opportunities through connectivity between production process and the local urban fabric

The industrial intervention of the production place takes the form of a Bio-diesel plant that will be situated on the Pretoria West Power Station, in the Pretoria West Industrial area, west of the City of Tshwane Central Business District.
