WSJwrites that Apple’s — et al. — new office buildings are signs of “tech’s boom and bravado”: “‘This is what rich, wealthy and powerful individuals have done since the Pharaohs built the pyramids — you build a building that projects power to the world,’ said Louise Mozingo, an urban-design professor at the University of California, Berkeley.”
WDMgot a shout in this WaPoarticle about a non-traditional new office in Manassas, Va.
