It's January in Buffalo, which means most of us take the rare gift of a snow-day and use that time to binge watch a show or movie on Netflix. I'm personally guilty of a binge-session or two, but watching this myriad of shows got me thinking- some of our favorite TV characters would make great architects!
Take Sherlock Holmes (from the show Sherlock, a series based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes detective stories) for example. Sherlock's exceptional intellect and remarkable powers of observation would enable him to create architectural masterpieces that transcend conventional design techniques.
Another character that would make an interesting architect is Dr. Derek Shepherd, from Grey's Anatomy. Not only did he design his own house on the show, but think of all the intricite architectural creations he could come up with using his immense knowledge of the inner workings of the human brain!
Call me crazy, but I could even see Spongebob Squarepants making a name for himself in the architecture world! I mean who wouldn't want to live in a pineapple under the sea?!
Don't think we've forgotten about our female characters! Imagine if Leslie Knope from Parks And Recreation were an architect! Her determination and spunk alone would serve her well in the design world. Her desire to pursue a life of public service could certainly be served in the architecture field, perhaps in the historic preservation sector?! If all else fails I'm certain she'd design an excellent waffle house.
