Defining Conservation Principles for the brewery of Ataturk Forest Farm

Sürmelihindi, Ozan
The subject of the conservation and preservation of industrial heritage was started to be handled starting from the middle of 20th Century in Europe. As in Turkey, industrial heritage concept is a subject which is in agenda in last years. Awareness about the subject increased with the help of social movements starting especially with the demolition of Ankara Maltepe Gas and Electric Factory. The Brewery of Ataturk Forest Farm should also be handled not to share the same fate with this example which was witnessed recently. In the years when Ataturk Forest Farm was founded, it was realized that industry is important for the economic development. In this sense, First Five Year Industry Plan, which was prepared with the order of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk to accelerate industrialization, was taken into action in 1934 and many industrial complexes were founded according to this plan. The Brewery of Atatürk Forest Farm is one of the reflections of First Five Year Industry Plan in Ankara. Today, the Brewery of Atatürk Forest Farm is out of use, ill conditioned and faced with the danger of destruction. Therefore, the brewery of Atatürk Forest Farm, which is one of the most significant examples of the industrial buildings of the Early Republican Period and located on a debated context like Atatürk Forest Farm, should be conserved and handed down the next generations.
