Architecture for Architects
The theme of Michael J. Crosbie's latest book for the Images Publishing Group is the architect's own office. As with most professions, first impressions are vital, so the design of an architect's own office can place his or her reputation on the line in a very public manner. Not only can clients assess a firm's style and capabilities based on the design of an architect's office but commissions can also be won or lost from that all-important initial representation. The projects within this book have been carefully chosen and reflect a variety of styles and trends. From historic old buildings shrouded in legend and lore to state-of-the-art modern chrome and steel structures, from the humble to the whimsical: the reader gets a glimpse of how each office aims to be a statement that highlights the skill and proficiency of the architects.
