The architectural future of the factory.

Recently I stumbled across a You Tube video of Elon Musk opening Tesla’s new Gigafactory. Apart from the astonishing fan boy following Tesla seems to have acquired I was astonished by the visualisation of an enormous box topped by solar panels. Initially, I thought that Tesla had turned their attention towards production on Mars (that appears to be still reserved for SpaceX) as the windowless white box was surrounded by a desolate, barren landscape, turns out it’s Nevada. In Musk’s presentation, he describes the new factory as a Tesla product needing “more innovation and engineering skill than the (car) product itself”.
