Publication: Vertical Urban Factory by Nina Rappaport
Actar Publishers, 2016
" Vertical Urban Factory focuses on the spaces of production in cities - both the modernist period and today - and the technologies that have contributed to shifts in factory architecture, manufacturing, and urban design. It tracks the evolution of the vertical urban factory from the first industrial revolution to the present and provides an analysis of the political, social and economic factors that have shaped today´s global industrial landscape. Ultimately, it provokes new concepts for the future of urban manufacturing, and the necessity of creating new paradigms for sustainable, self-sufficient urban industry.
Vertical Urban Factory includes a timeline of significant developments in technology, architecture, and manufacturing and is illustrated with over five hundred black and white and color photographs of historic and contemporary factories, as well as architectural renderings manufacturing and process diagrams."
