Inmos Microprocessor Factory by Richard Rogers Partnership
Having made his name with the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Lloyd’s building, Richard Rogers was commissioned in 1980 to design the Inmos microprocessor factory in Newport, Wales. The factory’s design was targeted for the delicate process of microchip assembly, which requires a clean and controlled space. Built at the time of the computer-chip boom, construction had to be completed within one year, a factor which would greatly influence the design.
