Manifesto of the Office Appreciation Society

WE BELIEVE that offices are unjustly maligned
and that life would be immeasurably poorer without them.

We think that they are Architecture’s poetry,
and the most egalitarian of her displays, since
everyone can have a fantastic view of them.

We pledge to fight ‘red-brick thinking’ wherever we find it.
Life would be dull if we had to exist in
office-less monotony day after day.

We seek to remind people that offices are expressions of
our culture’s moods, and can be read like those of
a person’s countenance.

Offices are so commonplace that their beauty is often overlooked.
They are for dreamers and their contemplation benefits the soul.
Indeed, all who consider the spaces they see in them will save
on psychoanalysis bills.

And so we say to all who’ll listen:
Look around, marvel at the ephemeral beauty, and live life with your imagination in the offices!
