Government Executive Editor in Chief Tom Shoop, along with other editors and staff correspondents, look at the federal bureaucracy from the outside in.

Hardly a Cubicle

ARCHIVES

The capital city's most spectacular offices include three occupied by federal executives, according to a photo-feature in the November Washingtonian magazine.

The stunning glimpses of offices with a view, with ornate décor or historical import include that of Treasury Undersecretary for International Affairs Lael Brainard, whose blue-carpeted workspace was once occupied temporarily by President Andrew Johnson following the Lincoln assassination.

The tall wood paneling enjoyed daily by Assistant Secretary of State Rose Gottemoeller was previously used by George C. Marshall when he was Army chief of staff and by General Leslie Groves when he directed the Manhattan Project.

And the walls chockablock with samples from past major art exhibits provide workaday inspiration to Mark Leithauser, senior curator of the National Gallery of Art.

The feature isn't available online, so if you're interested in these feds' workspaces, you'll have to seek out a print copy of the magazine.
