Industria, Barking

Haworth Tompkins

Industria is one of a new generation of urban industrial buildings that are integrated within mixed-use townscapes and provide high-quality urban design, as well the amenities to support local neighbourhoods and to attract and retain skilled workers. It seeks to catalyse long-term change in the local economy and townscape, supporting the creation of new markets and of a working community where interaction, sharing ideas and problem solving help drive the new economy. The project represents an exciting new industrial typology for the UK that has the potential to be of national significance in this field.
