The Industrial Environment

The Industrial Environment
Here's a bunch of sketches I did around some local Industrial estates.
They're a pretty unloved environment, understandably so, since it seems to me that care of property is very much aligned to exposure to the general public. If it's a tile distributor or mail depot, they're generally scrubbed up, new and gleaming, but if it's a steel fabricator or obscure machinery parts outlet catering only to specialists, then you're lucky if the crumbling fascia has been painted in the last 20 years.
Perversely, the latter are usually the more attractive, avoiding the bland warehouse architecture taking over the perimeter of our cities
