What’s good y’all? This week we shakin’ dem haters off with The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand.
Howard Roarke is da only bruh in his architecture school who wanna shake things up. Errybody else just a buncha by-the-book hacks who think building design gotta rep tradition. But Roarke don’t flow with that mess- he got his own vision and don’t give a damn what they think. Brutha keep it so real that the school expels his ass STRAIGHT UP. So he head to New York and start workin’ for an architect named Henry Cameron. Even though Cameron’s rep ain’t so hot among the big dawgs anymo’, Howard think he the trillest architect in the game.
Meanwhile, Howard’s homie from school Peter Keating just got a job at up at a SWAG architecture firm workin fo’ some famous rich dude Guy Francon.
Roarke and Cameron always makin’ real dank-ass designs, but nobody really cares bout inspired work, so they gotta keep on da hustle jus’ to scrape by. Whereas dat scrub Peter is able to stack MAD grands just by smooth talkin’ peeps and designing ‘em pretty weak-ass buildings. Before you know it, dude becomes full partner- even though he accidentally merced a guy to get there! Peter feel bad… but not when bad feels THIS GOOD.
