The lobby of an industrial building is an interesting place that often is required to fulfill several purposes. First it is a transitory space. It is an area between the outside that is open to anyone, and the inner sanctum where only employees and invited guests may go. It is where the guests are 'screened' for a business reason to enter, their hosts called, paperwork to be filled out, perhaps there are rest rooms for the visitors use, perhaps there are meeting rooms where the visitor may meet with employees without going inside.
The lobby is the first place that a visitor sees, and the area that gives him the first impression of the company he is visiting. This has created in the minds of architects the need to make the lobby area more appealing to the eye and other senses of the visitors and employees.
This is an idea book composed of photographs of advanced lobby designs from around the world. The book is printed on high quality paper and bound using traditional sewn signatures and headbands to produce a long lasting book that can be heavily used by the architect and his clients.
