MiB Control Center

One needs to keep architects far away from areas where work actually has to be done: the Mosek Control Center in Moscow looks like the bridge of a starship from an improbable future.

Mosek Control Center
Moments after the captain called 'abandon ship' the bridge was deserted as crew ran for the life pods.

Hermetically sealed command pod?  Check.  Rolling office chairs allowing an careless worker to roll off the platform?  You betcha.  4,921.5 square feet of wasted space? 

Brother that ain't wasted, it's art.

You just know the actual work purported to be done in this space happens in a small room with some pushed-together desks, CRTs, cork board maps and two-way radios racked on the wall.
