In Central Europe, in Czech West Bohemia, logistic landscapes are rising up in strategically ideal locations: vast windowless steel structures built by Amazon, Primark, DHL, and others dominate the otherwise rural farming landscape. This artfully crafted urbanistic study investigates the effects of these logistics parks on local agriculture, communes and communities. A highly topical book!
