Renewing the Tradition of Design Excellence in Federal Architecture

By Thomas Walton, Ph.D., Editor, Design Management Journal; Associate Dean, School of Architecture & Planning, Catholic University of America

The construction of multi-million dollar office complexes and civic buildings, the preservation of cherished landmarks, the renovation of structures with the latest in technology and environmentally conscious building systems -- as steward of the federal government's real estate, these are key and highly visible activities of the U.S. General Services Administration. To assure quality in this work, the agency has implemented a Design Excellence Program, policies assessed here by Thomas Walton.
