It ought to be said that I don’t imagine this plan as the definitive plan of the factory. It is an in-process plan – an attempt to mimic and illustrate a process of production – and hence the plan is a plan of possibilities. My final project could be any of these dumb gravity-induced ideas.

    Can there be a separate drawing – or one drawn on top in another colour that tracks the process through the assembly line? Perhaps something that shapes the route your ‘product’ takes?

      I have something like that in mind, something simple (i.e. doable within a day). Will post later.
