Instytucja Kultury "EC1 Łódź - Miasto Kultury"

City’s Culture Institution “EC1 Łódź – Miasto Kultury” (EC1 Lodz – the City of Culture) was established in the City of Łódź, on the 9th of April 2008, on the basis of the resolution of the City Council of Łódź no. XXX/588/08. “EC1 Łódź – Miasto Kultury” is responsible for: 1) co-ordination and the development of the project of the New Centre of Łódź 2) management of the project called “EC-1 revitalization and its adaptation for cultural and artistic purposes”.

“EC-1 Revitalization and its Adaptation for Cultural and Artistic Purposes”. Revitalization of post-industrial EC-1 power plant, located in the centre of the City of Lodz, the capital of the Lodz Voievodship, is the main target of the project. EC-1 revitalized buildings will serve new functions: Cinematography Arts Centre and Interactive Science and Technology Centre with the cultural, educational and social functions like permanent and temporary displays, experiments’ rooms, gastronomy and retail services. Exposure program concept of the Science and Technology Centre, in adapted EC-1 power plant complex in Łódź, includes a proposal to place displays/shows and experiments integrated with the historical infrastructure of buildings/objects. The foundation of the concept is based on assessment of challenges caused by technical revolution and the role which museum should fulfill in solving above-mentioned problems. The concept includes a complex plan of managing the exhibition space, which is separated into three visiting scenarios, differenced by exposure form and intensivity of visiting. • First of offered educational path “Skansen – Energy Processing” is based on historical infrastructure of buildings/objects and it presents energy production process. • Two other scenarios “Knowledge & Civilization Development” and “Micro-world and Micro-world” show selected concepts, physical and chemical phenomenons and their roles. Exposure program concept also includes a proposal of exhibit list to every path, matched into logical record. Variety of difficulty level makes the offer attractive for pupils from primary school, high school and adult students. Some of the stands are proposed as alternatives, so as to emphasize open and modular structure of the part of exposure. There is also a management plan for EC1 surroundings, temporary exposure program concept and guidelines on how to realize above-mentioned program concept. The realization of the project has started in 2008. The project will be completed in the first half of 2014.
