What good is an Architect in a library?

A picture speaks a thousand words – Fuck cliches this one has five hundred and seventy one words.
Besides the obvious – Some architects read (blah, blah, blah) & our last intern  was an architect. We got talking with this one when she was checking out a whole bunch of zines, she asked what was playing when I  walked in – Um, Beethoven’s Moonlight sonata Movement 1, 2, & 3 (Really good track to listen to on loop when you want to work on something fast). She mentioned she has been a customer for many years, used to learn to play the piano up the street at St. Mary’s church and never had a conversation with us – well we hate people too, most interactions are meaningless bullshit with no learning, she nods in agreement.

“Books can make you go crazy”

Couple of days ago two corporate type yuppies walking out of the store after spending about three and a half minutes in the store happened to say the most beautiful thing, blah, blah, blah…you do not want to get into “reading” as books can make you go crazy.

Conventional wisdom would probably disagree with the yuppies. My colleague and myself silently smiled (a little crazily?) in agreement.
