The Cocoon

God is in the details

— Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

This Swiss building is called the Cocoon, and it took my breath away the minute I came across it today. I’ve been working from home for nearly five years and really love it, but I’d get professionally suited-up and ride public transit during rush hour [both of which I hate] if I could work here.

Based on the visceral and emotional buzz I got just looking at pictures of it, I’m convinced that I’d be more creative and productive in this space, that my abilities would soar, that my mood would be mostly positive and that my general health would improve.

See more photos of this building here and be moved, too.
