All too often, the design of contemporary industrial structures is just a variation on the big-box format, which can only, to a limited extent, respond to context and the needs of human users.

The chance to reinvent the way industry and environment can interact in a positive way. The examples assembled here touch on different aspects of using architectural quality to go further than the purely functional, but they also show the possibilites of simply creating good design than the purely functional, but they also show the possibilities of simply creating good design with modest means. Industrial architecture is often created from low budgets and standardized with modest means. This makes the challenge of the desiner all the greater, and proves that architectural quality is not primarily driven by investment but by imagination and invention.
