rawings.The twenty sections of this volume frame some of the key historical narratives through which to enter this century of US offices and their export. OfficeUS Atlas opens with the professionalization of architectural practice in the US in the second half of the nineteenth century, and the episodes that follow outline the successive transformations of both offices and their products in response to political, economic, and technological forces. The story of international philanthropy, for example, begins in the early twentieth century in China and Japan, only to be recaptured in different forms in post-independence India and Pakistan. Cold War politics and related development track through a series of interrelated narratives in the postwar period, from the international hotel chains enabled by the Marshall Plan to the US Embassy program to national participation in trade fairs and world expositions under the guidance of the United States Information Agency. Oil and other global resource flows, the deregulation of markets, the demand for iconicity, building booms, and various cultural conditions all count among the factors that have drawn US architecture firms into foreign contexts.
