Cramped cubicle culture is not unfamiliar to many office-dwellers, as most of us spend our adult years feeling like rats being held in a badly lit corporate cage. Not all workspaces are created equal, though. In fact, some of the following cubicles and office spaces are the stuff dreams are made of. Here are some of the coolest workspaces that foster productivity and likely make water cooler discussions a little less “I can’t believe I have to work here” and more “I can’t believe I get to work here!”

One Russian Billionaire’s Crazy Expensive Yacht

Adorned with three luxurious pools and thousands of fancy fixtures, Andrey Melnichenko’s crazy expensive yacht is so opulent that it would make even Caligula blush. Like Madonna and Beyonce, the “A” yacht is so spectacular that it was given a one-word moniker. The beautiful boat—which some say looks more like a submarine than a luxury liner—set Russian billionaire Melnichenko back a staggering 300 million dollars. The result is a fully customized floating paradise, complete with bath knobs that cost a reported 40 thousand dollars—each. For comparison’s sake, that could also pay around two years of Harvard tuition fees.

31 Beautifully Abandoned Soviet Monuments

While Francis Fukuyama so cheerily declared that the world had reached “the end of history” in 1992, he was only half right. True, the Soviet Union and its ideological model had collapsed, and the Western model of liberal democracy had prevailed. However, even as ideas come and go, the structures in which we house them tend to take a bit longer to disappear.

Such is the case with the monuments scattered across the former Soviet Union. Before its dissolution, the Soviet Union had an area of 8.65 million square miles, filled with approximately 290 million people. While these abandoned Soviet monuments have succumbed to time and the elements, they remind us of the transformative and lasting power of ideas.
