Until recently the university town of Enschede in the east of the Netherlands, was perhaps best known for having once had a thriving textile industry; this and the industrial decline that ensued when this historic industry came to a fairly abrupt end in the 1970s, owing to fierce competition from producers in the Far East.

Southwest from Paris, just 1km from the Porte de Versailles and within view of the Eiffel Tower, the town of Issy-les-Moulineaux sits on the bank of the River Seine. It has undertaken a commitment that all its major buildings should be of high environmental quality, and this is evident in one new structure, with its green roof and its river frontage half hidden behind trees planted on the upper levels. It is therefore surprising at first to discover that this building in such a prime position is fulfilling the decidedly unglamorous function of a plant for sorting and treating waste.

Chatterley Valley Blue Planet Distribution Centre
If you think you know what a warehouse looks like, even a quick glimpse at the Chatterley Valley Blue Planet distribution warehouse in Newcastle-under-Lyme, North Staffordshire, will confound your expectations. Where most warehouses are rectilinear this one is sinuously curved; where most are of a single dull colour, this one is clad in stripes and different shades of green.
