On the Job:
Design and the American Office


Mr. Albrecht and NBM curator Chrysanthe Broikos conceived this book to accompany their exhibition at the National Building Museum. They selected essayists who explored the history of office furniture, management policies, and technology, and commissioned a photographic essay by leading photographer Steven Brooke on the phenomenon of new edge cities outside the nation’s capital.
