雖然閱讀測驗是很多考生感到害怕的英文題型之一,但是解題技巧是很容易學會的,因為外國人寫文章都愛用破題法,只要看第一段即可知道文章大概在講什麼內容。例如在此篇文章的一開始有提到”modernism” (現代主義)、”tenet” (宗旨)、”template”(模板) 、”uniformity”(單調),所以文章一定跟”現代主義建築過於單調”有關。


 

Of all Modernism’s tenets, few have been more “revered” than

the assembly line. Its crisp efficiency was a template for everything.

The new BMW plant in Leipzig serves as an antidote to just that sort of

uniformity. A boomerang-shaped industrial shed with rows of cars

5

streaming on curving tracks, it is less a model of efficiency than a

machine for voyeuristic pleasure. Moreover, the plant is an attempt at

social engineering. Its architect subverts the sequential order of

manufacturing by having each car loop back through the central

building, where workers can survey their work. Engineers and workers

10

are in constant contact, too, mingling in the corridors and the

cafeteria, which breaks down the hierarchy. Because each car is

routed on its way from the body shop to the paint shop or final

assembly plant, you witness them in all their various stages. At

certain points, the cars stop and revolve on enormous turntables

15

before heading off in a new direction. The movements suggest

mechanical ballet. Leipzig plant is thus the flagship of BMW that

provides customized services. Very subtly, the free flow of

information replaces the monotony of the assembly line; individual

needs rule over bland repetition; and machines are at the service of

20

man.
