Design for change: the architecture of DEGW
This book presents the first in-depth study of the ideas and methodologies of one of the world's leading architectural practices. Through a series of keynote essays and case studies it provides a unique insight into a body of work that has had a profound influence on contemporary design thinking. DEGW occupies a special pivotal position between theory and practice in architecture. The practice is internationally renowned for the breadth, and depth, of its user-based research and for the scope of its global consultancy. For more than two decades, its detailed understanding of how organisations use buildings has allowed DEGW to lead the field in developing fresh approaches to workplace design.
