Summary This book aims to explore the designed landscapes associated with factories and corporations in the UK and US created since the industrial revolution. It is largely historical, focusing on the period between 1890 and 1930 but it comes right up to date with initiatives such as secret gardens and vegetable allotments at the London Google offices.
