legends move on

This is the hallway outside the office of a well-known economist. The hallway is unremarkable architecturally. Remarkable things can happen in such places. The urge to create "inspiring spaces" is something that designers fixate on. God forbid that anyone do a rigorous study that demonstrates how "inspiring space" do little to promote creativity or profit. Usually, when an organization builds an "inspiring space" that "fosters creativity and innovation" it's a sign that its share price is about to peak and then begin a long decline.
