OfficeUS Manual (Lars Müller Publishers, 2017) is a critical, occasionally humorous, and sometimes stupefying guide to the architectural workplace. The third publication of OfficeUS, this book presents office policies and guidelines spanning the last 100 years alongside commissioned statements by contemporary contributors, original graphic analysis, and images from The Architects by Amie Siegel. The Manual is a resource for understanding—and reimagining—the nature and design of architectural practice. At this book talk, OfficeUS editors and contributors will interrogate the protocols, policies, and procedures of the architectural workplace.
