The book 'Vertical Urban Factory' focuses on the spaces of production in cities - both the modernist period and today - and the technologies that have contributed to shifts in factory architecture, manufacturing, and urban design.

In the book Nina Rappaport tracks the evolution of the vertical urban factory from the first industrial revolution to the present and provides an analysis of the political, social, and economic factors that have shaped today’s global industrial landscape. Ultimately, it provokes new concepts for the future of urban manufacturing, and the necessity of creating new paradigms for sustainable, self-sufficient urban industry.

'Vertical Urban Factory' demonstrates how entrepreneurial, hybrid spaces and cleaner and greener factories can reintegrate manufacturing into city life as new paradigms for urban industry that will prove more sustainable, self-sufficient, and socially equitable workplaces. The book includes a timeline of significant developments in technology, architecture, and manufacturing and is illustrated by over four hundred black and white and color photographs of historic and contemporary factories, architectural renderings, and process diagrams.
