Synopsis

Design for Government surveys the state of public sector buildings, and focuses on the leading role that governments take today in setting new and higher standards for design quality in support of goals and mandates for improved productivity, more effective use of non-renewable resources, and the health and welfare of employees. The book includes 15 case studies that address a representative array of building and facility types. Each documents client intent, design response, key features, and actual or expected performance. The projects covered range in scale from a community's 14,000-square-foot city hall to the largest single workplace of the US federal government. They include specialized facilities like courthouses and courtrooms, as well as airports and convention centers--important public-sector activities in the US and other countries.
