architecture office 7 585x390 Man vs. Wild, Selgas Cano style

You know those smart asses that think rhetorical questions are cool? Like the asshole who works with you that thinks he’s the bomb and always rolls his eyes and says, “Does a bear shit in the woods?” when you ask a seemingly normal question? Well AHA, you smug prick, because no longer will that rhetorical question go unanswered, for the employees of Selgas Cano, a Spanish architectural company, watch bears shit all day as they work. And do you know why? Because the architectural office of Selgas Cano is located in the woods. The woods, people.

Photographed by Iwan Baan, the apparently secluded offices of Selgas Cano deserve some recognition. I’m not a huge fan of roughing it in the wild, and I don’t think that there’s a bus stop anywhere close by, but you have to admit that it’s different. I like the interior, but I think that I would feel too wierd trapped in a long, narrow glass prison while wild animals are allowed to roam freely around me. I highly doubt that they’re too far deep in the woods, but how freakin’ distracting is it to have birds and butterflies flapping around while you’re trying to finish your work? Maybe I think this because I’m easily distracted, or maybe it’s the jealousy speaking; I don’t think that any other office in the world boasts such a huge window in any one office, and the view is awesome. But what’s the address of the place? Can you even have an address if you’re not actually located on a street, boulevard, avenue, highway, alley, crescent, or road? Am I just a dumbass? I’M SO CONFUSED!

I dunno…I have mixed feelings about this building. On the one hand, it’s original and undeniably cool. On the other, the employees remind me a little too much of crickets in a glass jar just waiting to fall into the mouth of an enormous, waiting iguana. And I have to assume that there are other buildings not far away, because I don’t see any bathrooms. Unless, you know….does a Selgas Cano employee shit in the woods?
