This book grew out of a 2006 architecture design studio at Parsons School of Design that ultimately evolved into a related traveling exhibition and this book, though the publication does not specifically document the show. Publisher's description: Vertical Urban Factory focuses on the spaces of production in cities that both comprise factories that are significant in their design and contribute to a vital urban environment. This book reexamines the historic modernist and contemporary factories through the lens of an urbanist while provoking the future of urban manufacturing. It shows that now factories are cleaner and greener they can be reintegrated in city life creating a new paradigm for sustainable urban industry that is also more self-sufficient. Illustrated with historic and contemporary photographs, manufacturing process diagrams, and infographics by MGMT Design.
