    Wer die schönsten Büros weltweit sehen möchte, kommt um diesen reich bebilderten Band nicht herum. Sein Statement: Die Ära der standardisierten Arbeitsplätze ist vorbei. Manche Unternehmen setzen das neue Credo um, indem sie ungezwungene Arbeitsplätze schaffen, die an das Zuhause erinnern sollen. Andere schaffen fantastische Spielplätze für Erwachsene. Wieder andere geben sich einen luxuriösen Auftritt. Beispiele für alle Richtungen stellt der Band fulminant in Bild, Text und Grundriss vor. Nur schade, dass die eigene Bürorealität meist deutlich grauer aussieht als diese Vorzeigeprojekte.Redaktion Magazin Das Büro

    Ich bin gerade an der Planung eines ca. 2200qm großen Büros beteiligt, ca. 100 IT Arbeitsplätze, Neubau. Ein Budget, um Dinge "hübsch" zu machen ist vorhanden. Ich habe dieses Buch gekauft, um ein paar Inspirationen zu sammeln... und wenn auch nur EINE gute Idee enthalten ist, hat es sich schon gelohnt. Das Buch regt zum Nachdenken an. Von 8 Arbeitsplätzen bis zu 5000 ist alles enthalten. Viele schöne großformatige Bilder, viele interessante Perspektiven, Grundrisse. Es ist erstaunlich, wie Büros heute aussehen können. Von verspielt (.com/Facebook/et al.) bis sachlich: alles dabei.Bitte beachten: beschrieben werden eigentlich nur IT-Firmen/Verwaltungsgebäude/Werbeagenturen. PC-Arbeitsplätze, Besprechungsräume & Co. stehen im klaren Fokus.Top!

    If you are interested in the theory behind unique and high quality office design, this is an amazing book. Full of high quality pictures to really show you around the offices as well as the blue print style layouts. The written word is brilliant - detailed yet to the point. Telling you the architects and builders involved, year of completion and budget in some cases. Really can't give the book enough praise. A great read.
