function factory
contributed by Jose_Garcia

Designed between 1908 and 1909 for the Allgemeine Elektricitäts Gesellschaft (AEG, a German electrical concern founded in 1883), the AEG Turbinenfabrik (Turbine Factory) was placed strategically at the southern edge of the factory complex along Huttenstrasse and Berlichingenstrasse, facing Berlin and the world as a show front of the prosperous industrial magnate. Complying with such expectations and following his own ideological stance, Behrens built a magnificent iron and glass hybrid of two eminently classical temple traditions -the Greek and the Egyptian-, meant to glorify industrial might. In accepting the challenge of designing his first industrial building, Behrens’s concern was not to recast all of architecture in terms of industry and the machine, as was most often the case with the next generation of modern architects. Rather, his concern was levating so dominant a societal force as the factory to the level of established cultural standard (text from Architectural World).
