Not only does it amaze me that everything from the desks, shelves, stairs, and pillars are made from cardboard, but that it all looks so polished and streamlined. There's nothing "trashy" about it.

It's a beautiful job! But the first thing I thought of was, "oh geez, if the building ever catches fire the cardboard will all be gone in about ten seconds!"
