13 Breathtaking Office Views From Around The World

For Architectural Digest, by David Foxley.

Given that the majority of Americans between the ages of 25 and 54 spend more time working than doing anything else, including sleeping, it's no surprise that they care about their offices. For a lucky few, those spaces include a hawk’s nest vantage point—a perch from which to peer down on the world. Soaring office views allow tenants to lord over a sky-high kingdom, to woo prospective clients, and to feel pretty good about their station in life. For this roundup, AD looked around the planet for the office spaces with the greatest, largely urban perspectives.
