These are structures and buildings such as factories, furnaces, power plants, manufacturing facilities, heavy-duty pipes, etc. Industrial architecture also descibes the features and appearance of these industrial structures. Buildings of industrial architecture are usually found in scattered areas inside or outside the outer fringes of a city, or amassed in a large designated area known as an industrial park.
Industrial architecture can be found everywhere and in every town. The cover of the Alan Parsons Project album "Ammonia Avenue", features a road surrounded by a large system of heavy-duty industrial pipes carrying ammonia and other chemicals.
