From what I’ve seen, it’s the Architects that have the best spaces. The Artists delight on occasion, but the rest of the professional world tends to fall a million miles short of wonderful. The very word “corporate” causes a tetanus-like (involuntary and forceful) curling of my poor little spine when used to describe a working environment.

My own abode has generally bordered on the austere, or perhaps a general coldness. Not so much coldness as a lack of warmth. Large expanses of white space, often unadorned with anything but the perpetually watchful eye of the taxidermied brother leader (something about that term… maybe that’ll become its official name).

But essentially I’m just trying to say that Architects make it work. Uncannily so. Their bookshelves, furniture arrangement, it all sums up to be the equivalent of good residential posture. The rest of us flounder about. See the space and actively not even know that we don’t know what simple changes could radically benefit it.

More good art?
