Hoover factory and office building, Middlesex, England, 1932. . " That such artistry went into the design of a factory is an example of the optimism of the modernist era.... Buildings like this were monuments to faith in a new machine age which would lift mankind from the drudgery of the past. That era has long gone of course, today the Hoover building is home to a Tesco supermarket which tells you plenty about how western nations have gone from producing things to consuming them."
