The factories of American cities are examples of functional beauty constructed from an attempt to adapt a means to an end. The Works is a generously illustrated and exhaustive study of the different types of industrial buildings over one hundred years. It explains the rationale of the design of factory buildings and the works complexes, the changes in building materials in relation to functional needs, and the aesthetics of industrial architecture.
