Modern Offices: A User Survey. National Building Studies Research Paper 41.
Langdon, F. J.
A record and assessment of the important environmental features of office buildings erected between 1948 and 1961 in the business center of London, England, has been assembled. This survey gives an overall picture of the main trends in office building and architecture and examines their consequences in terms of user satisfactions and complaints. The major problems are shown to be the effects of over-heating in summer, poor ventilation, and noise, particularly from road traffic. An important conclusion which emerges from the report is that all these effects are interrelated and are frequently the outcome of the design and construction of the building. (TC)
