The following information is from the publisher:


Featuring 50 cutting-edge projects from around the world, this international survey of workplace design is the ultimate resource for anyone creating the workplace of today or tomorrow. Abundantly illustrated with plans and photographs throughout, the book is divided into three colour-coded sections. Part 1 showcases low-cost workplaces created for small companies. Part 2 is a collection of medium-sized projects, all of which place a strong emphasis on environmental sensitivity and getting the most from a restricted budget. Part 3 is a selection of offices designed for large companies; here too the aim is to be as eco-friendly as possible, as well as to provide spaces that promote productivity, creativity and enhanced interaction between employees.

The projects in each section are located across the globe. From Selgas Cano’s semi-subterranean, tubular office in a forest near Madrid, to the ‘living skin’ of Harmonia 57 in São Paolo, each project proves that our workplaces needn’t be boring, expensive or harmful to the environment.

    The staircase in the bottom pictures looks amazing, it makes great use of such large space in the office.
