Industrial Architecture

Surely I cant be the only person on these forums whos an absolutely huge fan of industrial architecture. Everything from conversions to massive smoke spewing factories. I love them. Theres just something beautiful about them.....So lets post some photos then.

Early 19th century Georgian "low" sugar warehouses built in 1802, Canary Wharf, London, now home to Museum In Docklands and eating places.



Cool 19thC warehouses in Southwark, London.





Limehouse, London.



19thC Granary in Barking, East London. Soon to be converted into apartments and artists studios.





Warehouse on Fish Island near The Olympic Park in London. Future uncertain.



Burrells Wharf, Isle of Dogs, London. SS Great Eastern was launched from a nearby yard.

Today these warehouses mostly contain high-end residential developments.

You aren't alone out there, believe me pal


I especially like the representative industrial buildings, like administrative ones, water towers, offices, some warehouses, area gates and so on.

Awesome example from Berlin, Germany:


Berlin-Tegel: Borsig AG, a former producer of locomotives.

The Borsig Tower (Borsigturm), Berlin's first highrise (65 m) had been built on the works premises as an office building by Eugen Schmohl, an example of Expressionistic architecture.

The factory 1847, painted by Karl Eduard Biermann



The first Borsig locomotive from 1840 (reconstructed for the Berlin Technical Museum). You can find this type in the painting too, drawn by horses.

Indeed and Germany is really lucky to have so many fantastic examples of Brick Expressionism.

Reading Power Station, Tel-Aviv:


*The huge chimney was added long after the main, white structure had been built- in order to keep the pollution away from the nearby population as the station was upgraded and started to generate more electricity.
