    Joel, I told you to warn me the next time you were taking pictures of my office! I haven’t trimmed the trees yet this year!

    I think it would be fine if I didnt have to share it with anyone.

    …and I could have a decent chair.

    I like the view but give me some privacy please.
    I really despise open floor plans.

    I wonder about the acoustics — like in a tunnel?

    I guess the more urban version would be to set up shop in a single lane of a bowling alley.

    Looks like it’d be great for “creativity” but a bigger boon for “distraction”

    Seeing how now I have to stand up and crane my neck around the cubicles to catch a glimpse of sunlight, I would really dig working in this office.

    Iwan Baan is apparently the photographer, but not the designer — that would be Selgas Cano Architects.
    BTW,I am one of those people who would like.

  9. George Curious says:

    Do want!

  10. Lea Hernandez says:

    The first thing I think when I see that is: WANT. The second it: INDOOR SKATING! The third: laying on the floor watching storms.

    #15 makes a point, these design ideas are very conducive to sprawl.

    One of which people? You give two sorts of people and say that you are one of them…but which one?

    Maybe you are both? Maybe just an occasional person?

  13. Moriarty says:

    Looks like what people imagined the future to be in 1973 or so. Tenants should be required to wear matching silver jumpsuits.

  14. inkfumes says:

    Sooo… which one are you?

  15. Rob Beschizza says:

    I was about to say, “Well, Joel isn’t about to post a picture of an office he’s uninterested in.” But then I realized that a hypothetical tumblog carries a high probability of Joel.

  16. Auto Parts for Brains says:

    Okay, I am ditching my office for this one.I bet Google will have one of these on their lawns soon.

  17. bp says:

    I am one of those people, too. I am even more so one of those people when it comes to hyper-minimalist offices like this one.

    This is so full of WIN!!!
