Some reasons Santa Claus is probably an architect

FUNDRAISER UPDATE! There are only a few days left to help us raise some money for Architecture for Humanity. So far we’re raised over $1700. Which is seriously awesome. THANK YOU GUYS! But, I bet we could raise a bit more, what do you say, want to help us out? Click HERE for all the details. I’ll be sending the check in a few days, so time is running out!

And, we now return you to the Angstmas celebration already in progress:

Some reasons Santa Claus is probably an architect:


Workshop full of elves, Studio full of interns, same thing.

He is fond of coal, err … charcoal.

He is a white male who’s over weight.

He works all year round, even over the holidays.

Traditional Nordic Vernacular.

He carries a bag, never a briefcase.

He is always trying to give the children/clients exactly what they ask for.

He is surrounded by white.

He assumes the chimney will be the central organizing element in every home he visits.

He knows if you’ve been good or bad, but he’ll probably just give you whatever you asked for anyway.

He only steps foot in a mall once a year.

It only takes one major project to keep the studio/workshop employed all year long.

He set a deadline for December 25th.

He will have to pull an all-nighter to meet that deadline on December 25th.

What he does seems impossible and magical.

He takes all the credit for the work the elves/interns did.

He will have a lot of Lego.

He will always be there, even if you don’t believe in him.


You don’t need to pay him.
