This book which comes out of the “Transformation of Places of Production” seminar organized by Aga Khan Award for Architecture in cooperation with Istanbul Bilgi University in January 2009, is a first publication on the topic of industrial facilities in the Muslim World. Most chapters generously illustrated, the book addresses diverse developments affecting industrial architecture both chronologically and geographically and examines them within their technological, socio-economic, as well as urban contexts.
Accompanying DVD contains English language and Turkish language versions of the short documentary film hosted by architect Süha Özkan, entitled: My workplace: a documentary film on contemporary industrial architecture in Turkey.
