Modern workspaces need to handle organizational complexity while providing the newest technology and equipment. More than that, office buildings are also the architectural callingcards of modern businesses. Transparency, openness, and environmental sensitivity are the qualities required of company headquarters and administrative buildings. In terms of interior design, the corporate image starts with the lobby and its furnishings. Some designs break with the traditional organization of workspaces, others aspire to turn offices into spatial objets d’art, and still others rely on the psychology of colour or integrate the landscape or cityscape surrounding the building into the design. Thirty cutting-edge examples are presented in this handbook, which features acclaimed office designs from around the world.
