Glass factory

Volkswagon is manufacturing its new luxury car in a parquet-floored glass factory. If this catches on, will it mean people are increasingly interested in the economics and ecologies of production? Or will it–more likely in my view–mean that the “dirty” parts of production are forced even further underground, while the final assembly locations are literally white-washed? If the just-in-time robotic wonder-factories of Japan are any indication, this economic and aesthetic bifurcation is an obvious path.
