With their towering smokestacks, factories stand as powerful symbols of efficiency and productivity. Post Industrial Revolution, many have turned into trendy, spacious housing and commercial areas, regenerating economic growth. Many preserved vestiges are surprisingly beautiful and remarkable architectural works which are showcased in this unusual book of old factories, factories at night and interiors in both colour and some black and white photography. There is a chocolate factory in Moscow, a hotel in Poland, exquisite brickwork façades, the Carlsberg Brewery in Copenhagen, industrial factories in Norway, a grain silo in Sacramento, the first Ford Factory in Michigan and the former Fiat Factory in Turin, an old cigar factory in Havana and of course our favourite Battersea Power Station in London with its extraordinary Art Deco interior. Discover the purity of line of these often steel-boned monuments, the fiery furnaces, often waterside locations and smoky chimneys. With gatefold page, 192 large pages, 24.7cm square.
