Foldable Poster

People who do not know the steam and sweat of a real factory can find industrial space romantic or interesting. But in many ways industrial spaces are more interesting than “post-industrial” offices, apartment houses, and shopping centres. Their façades are often adorned with archaic emblems and sculptures. Yet this ornamentation is a conceit of nineteenth-century technology. The façades of many loft buildings that were constructed between 1820 and 1880 were cast in standardised iron parts that could be ordered from a catalogue, mounted, and taken apart at will. Cast Iron(ically), the mass production of an earlier industrial era looks to our eyes like individuality.
