Walking Through Cities: Part 27
There’s something about industrial buildings. In the years after the second world war, when new factories and production lines began to spring up, they were a source of disquiet. Popular Science Fiction like Quatermass made them the breeding grounds for alien invasion. And after all, who knows what lays inside those strange metal silos?
There is an inherently physical quality to such structures. Bodies in their own right. Whereas the city centres are ever more abstract, here we find environments designed to an unflinching model of purpose and production. Even after death, they leave their mark.
