The Work of Booth Hansen
Total Performance Architecture is a select portfolio of an Booth Hansen and simultaneously a discourse on creativity in an office setting. Larry Booth’s conviction is that innovation and “total performance” depends upon the sustained creativity of the design team. This book examines and dissects the process that challenges every individual on that team to devise design solutions–from initial concept to final construction–that are uniquely suited to the conditions of any commission.
The architecture of Booth Hansen has changed and evolved, not from one style to another–but rather with the graceful integration of technology and aesthetic identity. Every commission is “modern beyond style.” Each design is open to all the possibilities, old and new, time-tested and innovative. Total Performance Architecture profiles a body of work to create buildings remarkably well suited to their time, place and the people who inhabit them.
