> DESCRIPTION

Vertical Urban Factory features the innovative design of factory buildings that are both urban — located in cities or shaping cities — and vertical — multistoried and dense. Included are significant examples from around the world, spanning the Modern era to the present. By examining the significance of these spaces, this project points to the impact of global economies on local industries and aims to stimulate ideas for the sustainable reintegration of the factory into the urban fabric.

Vertical Urban Factory is an independent project and exhibition curated by architectural historian and critic Nina Rappaport.
