Item description for Architecture for Architects by Michael J. Crosbie...
Michael Crosbie's theme for this book is the architect's own office. As with most professions, first impressions are paramount, but architects who design their own offices have their own reputations on the line, in an acutely public manner. Clients may assess a firm's style on the design of its office, and commissions can be won or lost on the basis of vital first impressions. Architects' own offices can be effective sales vehicles for their services to potential clients and they can speak volumes about the style, ability and culture of the firm. The projects carefully chosen for this collection range from the humble but superbly designed, to the spectacular showpiece, each highlighting the importance of an architect's own office and the various roles it plays.
