Phil 435, Philosophy and Architecture E/W, Fall, 2011 No: Show and Tell #10 Names: David Sroufe, Wesley McLaughlin, Billy Ray Birge III Location: Pullman Title: “Time is Money” In class we were going over many sayings like, “time flies”, or “running out of time”, so we thought we would stick with this theme and use “Time is Money” as the basis for this week’s show and tell.

This particular 1,000 dollar bank note was chosen because it was released between the two world wars, while Lithuania was independent. This is an office building which is currently rented at 85% of capacity and is located in a suburb, because it would not fit in with the looks of Lithuania’s inner cities. Time is money is a saying that seems to be a Western view on things.

Some people in corporate America would totally agree with working instead of seeing a family member(s) who are “running out of time” in this world. http://www.arnewde.com/architecture-design/money-building-1000-banknote-by-ra-studija-in-kaunas-lithuania/ Question: Do you view time and money as two things that can be directly related?...
