Offices from the past help us imagine the workspaces of the future | Financial Times
The best of these buildings (many still under threat) have lasted because they are beautiful. In The Office of Good Intentions, the architect Florian Idenburg and co-author LeeAnn Suen take a wider view of work, including cult sites such as Paolo Soleri’s Arcosanti in the Arizona desert, the Burning Man and Frank Gehry’s Menlo Park Facebook HQ. It delves into the less visible side of corporate culture, the cleaners, the failures, its furniture and the results of gentrification. Its design echoes the mess of a real desk, cluttered, and features vérité shots by architectural photographer Iwan Baan.
