The theme of the workshops is the SHOOTING RANGE premises in Wola Justowska. The historic building of the shooting range moved from one owner to another for many years. With time the building is not used and is decaying. The last plan for re-using the building was withdrawn due to public protest. People in the community have feared that the proposed plan of a large-scale services center would change the peaceful character of the area. However, it is well known and accepted that in order to bring the building back to life, a compromise is necessary to bridge between the investor and the local residents.
HISTORY: The Shooting Range was built in 1887. It has survived two World Wars and the Communist era. During Annexation the building was used for military purposes by the Austrians soldiers, members of Rifle Club, Pilsudski's legionaries. In the mid-War and after The Second World War the building, including the pavilion with centrally situated rotunda belonged to Krakow's garrison. Then the land became the property of the Treasury Department. In 1993 it was listed by the Art Monuments registry. Today it stands abandoned, in a state of ruin.
AIM: The aim of the ECOWEEK WORKSHOPS is to work out a balanced resolution and solution, which brings back to life this historic building while it maintains its architectural and historic value.
