Fluidity is positioned as the main conceptual and contextual phenomenon referring to the dynamic context of globalization, networking and consumerism, characterized by constant processes of flows and changes of material basis of everydayness. In addition, such socio-spatial context problematizes the static position of heritage and its correspondence to the increasing mobility, travel and touristic flows as well as dynamic everydayness. This paper is based on the research of the contemporary design methodologies in architecture affirming the cultural heritage as an integral element in the contemporary urban and touristic context of Belgrade. In addition, the aim of this paper is to research potentials and methods of preservation and improvem...ents of The first industrial zone on the Danube coast in Belgrade. Therefore, the research is based on the analysis of the Master graduate projects from University of Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture mentored by assistant professor Nebojša Fotirić and teaching assistant Bojana Jerković-Babović. Historical development of The First industrial zone in Belgrade is characterized by constant transformations of cultural and spatial conditions, creating fluid character of the transit, stratified place with lots of material and nonmaterial traces of colourful and turbulent history. The position of heritage in contemporary architectural design in the unique historical context of Belgrade`s Danube coast is presented with the idea of researching the relation between contemporary cultural values, touristic identities, aesthetic experiences and the new criteria of architectural creation.
