Factory Chimneys. Function, Construction, Architecture

In 1906, František Klokner (1872–1960) published his essay On factory stacks in the journal Vynálezy a pokroky (Inventions and Progress). He introduced the general public to stack functions, design and technical solutions, illustrating how record-breaking and outstanding stacks were built and also drawing the reader’s attention to their aesthetic qualities. This book draws on his important contribution and much broadens its scope significantly at the same time, introducing new facts that have emerged in the last hundred years.
