dc.description.abstractThe history of federal public architecture is intertwined with the birth of our nation’s democracy. The need for office space and a permanent location for a Federal city were essential and the process of construction a metaphor for building a nation. Since then, Federal public architecture has served as a symbol of our democratic values and inherently part of our civic consciousness. This study provides an extensive chronology of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) as the purveyor of federal buildings, tracing the early history of public architecture through key periods in time that have shaped our collection of government buildings, and includes a critical assessment of GSA’s current management processes, programs, and real estate portfolio.
