Industrial architecture: designers and plans

Published August 22, 2022

Lukáš Beran and Research Centre for Industrial Heritage FA CTU Prague published book about industrial architecture, its creators and reproductions of plans and period depictions.

Publiation presents industrial buildings as the embodiment of economic relations and production methods in a material form but also as the creations of real people, reflection of individual abilities, ambitions, and ideas about the world. Taking a production process and converting it into a spatial arrangement and into the physical dimensions of a building, choosing the right structure and making sure it’s also economical, and deciding what the structure should look like on the exterior are nonetheless all creative acts, anchored in the culture and society of a time.
