It is very evident thet the distilled spirits industry hQs mede rernqrkgble recov~ry ~nd progress from the disastrous effects of prohibition. Production, warehousing qnd bottling facilities heve been re~tored to en extent f~r beyond pre-prohibition d~ys. Although ~ trend toward moderation bee been successfully promotej in connection with the c~nsumotion of elcoholic bevsrqges, the rate h9s increased elmost ten-fold since repeel. The cost of e bottle of whiskey includes about 55~ for t~xes end only 45~ for the whiskey and conteiner. Accordin3 to recent reports, the distilled spirits industry and all relAted ~8tivities concerned with 1lco~olic bever~~ee directly give e~ployment to over e ~1111on ceople qnj h9~ contribut~d mora to ~ublic revenue then ?ny other indu9try. The industry sper.ds vqst amounts to i11prove its quqlity of product throu~h rese~rch, moderniz~tion of ol9nts gnj production procedures. I h~ve chosen this problem for my thesis work becguse of the respect for 1ndustriql plant des13n v and the challenge it affords the planner with its ever changing procedures and its unmatched possibilities for solution. Architecture is more than a facade which expresses new.· concepts of construction and variations of material usage ~. I ·t· is circulation also, human and mechanical both coordinated to accomplish its purpose alone and together. · This· plus attractiv~ faa tures to the vieual s·olution, should make up . ar:chi tecture and together be solved in a pleasing unity by the planner or architect. This thesis I believe offers me this challenge and through this completed work I hope to present a solution which will completely satisfy all of these architectural aspects.
