Renault Parts Centre Swindon

Was watching "Top gear" last night on BBC2 and they showed the former Renault Parts Centre Swindon which is now lying empty as they cannot find a tenant or purchaser for it.... Kinda sad....

Oh if you don't know what it is.... this is it on the cover of this book...

It's the doom of all such industrial buildings. Being designed by a famous architect makes no difference. Not far from this one was the seminal Reliance Controls factory by Team Four (Foster and Rogers). Long since demolished.
