The paper analyses the re-use of defunct industrial buildings paying special attention to the examples to be found in Budapest. It gives an account of the fate of the industrial buildings having lost their function and the reasons of the changes as well as the conditions promoting and hindering such changes in the function. The main goal of the research work is to elaborate a system of conditions enabling the analysis of the implemented re-uses and the various buildings using uniform criteria

The system of conditions extend to the grouping by the usual functions, but consider the location, the monument protection features, the floor-plan and the ownership of the property as well. The systematisation assists the reuse and the changing of the function and, in addition, it can expediently be used to the scientific analysis of the implemented re-use and the classification as well.
