Then Vaughn is asked if he’d consider working on a remake of a
movie based on Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead.
Vaughn makes a perspicacious point:
God, no. But I always thought it was interesting that the whole
point of the book is that it’s about this architect who’s on a
singular vision. And the DNA of making a movie is so different
Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a list to make it easy to find the perfect novel to consume your mind from 9 to 5. “The Fountainhead” by Ayn Rand: Don’t let the dense text bother you. This novel is worth every one of its 694 pages. Our friends over at the School of Architecture will enjoy Rand’s first novel, which is all about high society, gender roles and, you guessed it, architecture. From the beginning of the novel, you are introduced to 20-year-old Howard Roark who is the definition of egotism. (For those of you who know Ayn Rand, you will understand that he is the protagonist and therefore represents most of Rand’s ideology). Roark goes through his adult life trying to become an architect, not because he wants money or fame or circumstance, simply because he loves seeing his buildings built. Rand will make you reconsider most of what you think about society, yourself and what you are doing with your life.
