Manufacturing: A New Way
More InformationShow full item record
This thesis project, titled Manufacturing: a new way, will examine manufacturing buildings, and the working conditions that exist there. The typology will be a brewery with a area of 60,000 square feet. The guiding idea is that through careful design, manufacturing buildings can be made safer, more productive, and more enjoyable to inhabit. The site is in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. It is a lot at the corner of North 3rd Street and 7th Avenue North, right in the heart of the warehouse district. The manufacturing industry has been held to a minimal standard for many years. Through thoughtful design decisions, this project will help to redefine a new standard that will show good design can create an improved work environment that allows for increased productivity and a reduction of stress.
