Office Projects by the AA Design Research Lab
Edited by Brett Steele, with essays by Andrew Benjamin, Mark Cousins, Christopher Hight, Mohsen Mostafavi, Patrik Schumacher, Brett Steele, Tom Verebes
Corporate Fields imagines and gives form to the future of office life, bringing together more than 2,000 diagrams, models, renderings and other images from 26 architectural projects completed during the first three years of the ground-breaking AA DRL programme.
The projects are based on extensive field research undertaken in some of London's most creative corporate environments, and they have been developed from a close analysis of the remarkable ways in which today's leading companies challenge both traditional corporate practice and conventional office planning assumptions. The proposals resulting from this design research include masterplans and buildings as well as interiors and furnishings.
The book's editor, Brett Steele, is Director of the AA and was formerly head of the AA DRL. The other authors have all contributed to the teaching in the programme.
