Saltaire Mill, near Bradford, UK.

When completed, it was the largest industrial building in the world by total floor area

It's part of a World Heritage Site,

The longest attic in the world when it was built. I can assure you that it's vast! It's current use is an art gallery, offices, and an excellent traditional musical instruments (eg harpsichords) shop. I'm going to have some of my architecture work exhibited in the gallery over summer too

Great thread

I've always thought Ljubljana has quite rich industrial heritage.. Here are some of the most important ones:

Old sugar factory (1828)






Union Brewery (1864)




New part..


Tobacco factory (1872)








The Old Power Station (1898)












Initially leather, then bicycle factory Rog (1900, extended 1917)






Kolinska factory (1910)

Molino Stucky, in Venice (on Giudecca island). It's a big industrial mill built in neogothic style in 1895. Now it's a hotel

^ What kind of industrial purpose did this building serve? Looks interesting.
Like some uncommon kind of Art Déco.
