this is lets the series down...sorry Will it just does.
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.
wow; so many aslop haters?
hmmm...Will can't afford a bookshelf?.... like the picture though.
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?
"My future is behind me. All I can see is the past. And it bores me"
Give him a break, he's only just moved in.
It looks quite appropriate for the amount of work he's not doing.
