City Made presents three recently built factory facilities in Flanders through interviews and high-quality drawings and pictures, offering precise documentation of their construction.
This book documents the most recent realizations of urban factory facilities in Flanders designed by the upcoming architecture studio TRANS. In Flanders three recently built factory facilities showcase the potential of bringing manufacturing back to the city.

Also included is an interview with Mark Brearley (London Met) who relates the projects to an international context. Policymakers, investors, students and people interested in the much acclaimed Flemish architectural production will categorize it as an essential book on the topic.
