Factories are radical buildings. They are pure cubes with an absolute purpose: having rooms for machines of manufacturing processes.
In projects where functionality is everything and the budget is limited the architect has a fascinating task.
Factory Design shows how architects from all over the globe are facing this challenge.
If star architects or specialists are in charge of creating designs the completed plant often becomes flagship of the company.
This volume shows how subtle means can create highest quality in design and execution.
Hence the presented projects are factories that go far beyond just being a shell.
