Starting from the second half of the 20th century, the industrialization period which the western countries entered, caused a change in the production and transportation technologies and uselessness of these structures. These structures became useless and on the other hand arose as a serious problem with their locations at important sites of the cities which were growing and improving. Kocaeli is a city which has taken on a %22 load of Turkey’s industry, and is a city, weight of which became heavier because of the feature of being a transit passage which connects •stanbul to Anatolian. The city has become a place in which it is hard to live, adding on this the irregular and unplanned structuring which was applied until today. The main agenda topic of recent years for the protection and improvement of the environment in industrial cities is the determination of transformation models for industrial areas which got stuck in the city, have lost their economical importance and of which questioning has started to be made for their capacity of production and their logic. The transformation of industrial structures, sticking with their protection, which are no longer functional to new functions, is one of the typical topics of the third generation modernizing period which started 30 years ago and the concept of “industrial archeology” has come into existence with this period. Seka Paper Factory is regarding its scale, location, and its place in the memory of the city and citizens the most important which was earned for the city by considering “public benefits” as a result of the industrial transformation in our country and has the property of being the largest industrial transformation project/ park which serves to “industry archeology” regarding its scale.
