Publisher's description: Industrial buildings have been the sites of some of the most innovative work in architecture and engineering, their anonymity and ties to new technologies freeing architects and engineers from some of the concerns that traditionally dominate the discipline. Jean Prouve, Herzog & de Meuron, Perter Behrens, Albert Kahn, Franeois Hennebique, Robert Maillart, and Pier Luigi Nervi are just a few of the major figures who made their names building for industry. Spaces of Production celebrates the industrial building with a survey of some of the most noted projects of the past one hundred years, be they simple or extremely complex, cavernous halls or lofty skyscrapers. Drawing on Jeannette Kuo's extensive research, the book features floor plans and sectional views alongside brief descriptive texts and a wealth of photographs. Historical projects are juxtaposed with contemporary works by students at the School of Architecture at the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne. Essays explore a range of topics related to the industrial building, including the special capacity to produce a pure relationship between space, structure, and light.
