This article discusses about the importance of the industrial revolution and the remains left behind from its beginnings, which reminds us of an extremely important period very different from our own. The architecture of the industrial sites from the second half of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century shows us both a unique architectural style, created by the economic needs of that time, but also a way of life and socio-economic development for cities. To not lose important remains such as this, in this study, we proposed the transformation of the important industrial complexes and buildings in Bucharest decided by their history and former functions, adding innovative elements to grow their attractiveness. These buildings currently in a state of degradation, once transformed into different cultural attractions, will have the purpose of increasing the quality of the spaces around the city's center, will help with the gentrifying process of the city's abandoned zones, with growing the attractiveness and the revenues of the city and at the same time they will keep alive the history of the city through elements of identity which lead to its development.
