    LA PRESERVACIÓN DEL PATRIMONIO INDUSTRIAL AZUCARERO EN AMÉRICA DEL NORTE Y DEL SUR. 

    Sección: Conservación, seguridad e intervenciones sobre el patrimonio. Memoria industrial, economía circular y turismo industrial en la nueva normalidad

    La agroindustria de la caña de azúcar promovió una variedad de tipos urbanos y actuó de manera significativa en la construcción del territorio en las Américas. Los paisajes de la producción de azúcar se han enfrentado a cambios profundos durante las últimas décadas. Los pueblos azucareros, que florecieron principalmente hasta la década de 1940, representan un híbrido urbano-rural de pequeña escala con características agrícolas, industriales y residenciales. Los ingenios azucareros fueron el punto de partida para el desarrollo de muchas colonias industriales. Esta ponencia examinará la preservación del patrimonio industrial azucarero en Brasil y los Estados Unidos con un enfoque en la relación entre la historia y la preservación del patrimonio (o la falta de) por medio de comparación entre los sitios del patrimonio azucarero por excelencia, en particular Sugar Land, Texas, Estados Unidos y la región de Piracicaba en Brasil; (2) examinar en una perspectiva histórica las similitudes y diferencias entre los proyectos de reutilización y los problemas de conservación; y (3) presentar las actividades de las partes interesadas en ambos países.

     

    The Preservation of the Sugar Industrial Heritage in North and South America

    SECTION: Conservation, security and interventions on the heritage.  Industrial memory, circular economy and industrial.

    The sugarcane agro-industry promoted a variety of urban types and acted significantly on the construction of the territory in the Americas. Sugar production landscapes have been facing profound changes over the last decades. Sugar towns, which flourished mostly until 1940s, represent a small-scale urban-rural hybrid with agricultural, industrial, and residential features. Sugar plantations were the starting point for the development of many company towns. This paper will examine the preservation of the sugar industrial heritage in Brazil and the Unites States with focus on the relationship between history and heritage preservation (or lack of) through a comparison between quintessential sugar heritage sites, in particular Sugar Land, Texas, in the United States, and the Piracicaba region in Brazil; (2) examine in a historical perspective the similarities and differences the adaptive reuse projects and conservation issues; and (3) present the activities of the stakeholders in both countries.
