Press for industrial sounds
All production requires producers, all work involves workers, and new models for industry will call for and be called for by a new generation of industrial labor. As we take account of the emerging new modes of production and call for changes in the ways we plan and design our cities, we must also support the “makers” of this coming generation.
How do we envision the daily life of the industrial worker in the city of the 21st century? What should be the future relations between housing and industry? Can industry and housing coexist in proximity or even be integrated? Is there a way to design an industrial city while also enhancing livability and the quality of life of its inhabitants?
