Abstract
The report reviews the results of several research studies with respect to the attitudes of office users toward the 'landscaped', open office concept, or Buerolandschaft, and advances a general conclusion concerning the functional efficiency of landscaped offices. It is generally concluded that 'space planning' for complex office environments requires an integrated, total system approach in which specification of user requirements and performance criteria is given first and high priority. It is also concluded that the claims of the landscaped office protagonists for office productivity have not been substantiated. The landscaped office looks better but is judged to function no better than conventional offices. TRUNCATED
