Media Reviews
.. .a text which will be valuable for architects and clients...much of practical value...well illustrated...Buy the book if you are involved in office design; it will set you on the path .
- Building Design
A beautifully produced hardback that would grace the coffee table in any office, it has photographs and a layout that are a joy to see...The text is scholarship material, but witty and accessible.
- Flexible Working
Tommorow's Office tantalises by providing insights into the 'dilemmas' of office design...Santa Raymond and Roger Cunliffe preserve a successful balance between pictorial references, diagrammatic information and text...express a valid and important point of view...it gives useful insights to a potentially wide range of readers....facilities managers and organisational managers will be suprised at the major contribution that can be made by the design process.
- Architect's Journal
The book offers an in-depth analysis of what offices are (or should be) about. It provides helpful rules of thumb and a run through of dilemmas (note, not problems) under each chapter heading.
- Space Management
Certainly, I would recommend picking up and simply dipping into this book whenever a Facilities Manager, Chief Executive, Architect or Space Planner is about to embark on any project necessitating changes in the physical workplace...This book clearly contributes much to the contention that the traditional non-thinking approach to office space plannning is rapidly following the example set by the Brontosarus and its contemporaries.
