Industrial Building

Flexibility and corporate design, as well as the integration of research, development and production, continue to gain significance for the design of industrial buildings.The projects in this issue range from a hall for manufac-turing cars to a works for pharmaceutical technology and a modern vineyard facility.

The entire range of structural materials is used in the examples shown, including one that may be regarded as exotic in many parts of the world, namely earth.

In this way, the Ricola herbal centre near Basle seeks to demonstrate its closeness to the site and its environmental awareness. The McLaren Production Centre near London, on the other hand, with a working space ­distinguished by the use of ceramic tiles, has more in common with a laboratory than a classical automobile works, reflecting the elaborate production methods of this sports-car manufacturer.
