This book reexamines the historic modernist and contemporary factories through the lens of an urbanist while provoking the future of urban manufacturing.

Editorial Reviews

"Rappaport is a connoisseur of the beauty and utilitarian design of urban factories. However, she does not simply advocate for the preservation and repurposing of urban factories, particularly "vertical" multi-storied factories. She advocates for the role of industry in dense urban environments going forward into the future. The book is organized in three sections: "The Modern Factory," "The Contemporary Factory," and "The Future Factory."" --Carol Berens, UrbDeZine
