The industrial revolution had a massive impact on the course of human history, and Pavilion Brick Factory Vogelensangh demonstrates just one of the multitude of ways that those technological and economic changes resonate even today. The building features a layout that's directly inspired by the architecture of industrial factories, from shape to material.
Industrial warehouses and factories of the late 19th and early 20th centuries had very distinct architectural styles brought about much by necessity. They had simple, rectangular layouts to maximize space, chimneys to remove the exhaust from the factory, and they were built out of red bricks, a relatively inexpensive building material at the time. Clearly, Pavilion Brick Factory Vogelensangh is inspired by these design features.
