Modern industrial buildings have demonstrated the advantages of reinforced concrete arches, metal frames glass walls and prefabricated standardized mass produced parts. Steel was gradually substituted for iron and permitted wider rooms and larger windows. Windows can be enlarged to the extent that they constitute a large fraction of the wall area.
