  • I guess Will is trying to tell us that he is more important than the work. Why else include yourself blocking out a view of your desk.

    This looks like a scene out of a Hunter S Thompson Novel.

    Yes, Alisa, Will doesn't quite conform to traditional views of functionalist interior design: When to specify bookshelves and when to specify a desk? Tricky question for some. This rejection of such engrained social norms has been one of his strengths as an architect.

  • The archives of derivation, as manifested in the columns of books behind said genius, will topple over one day, thus finishing an era of unexplained tangents, angles, vectors, directions : whatever you wanna’ call them. RIP obtusity?

    Give him a break, he's only just moved in.

  • It looks quite appropriate for the amount of work he's not doing.
