“Industrial Urbanism: Exploring the City–Production Dynamic” This issue focuses on the spatial implications and physical manifestation of contemporary manufacturing in the city. In doing so it addresses four key questions. 1. What are the contemporary relationships between city and industry? 2. Should contemporary manufacturing be subjected to the same rules and zoning regulations as its predecessors? 3. What physical planning and design strategies should cities pursue to retain, attract, and increase manufacturing activity? 4. What is to be done with vacant factories and neglected industrial sites.
