Scenic public workspaces in DC

I'm coming to DC for a couple of weeks to start a job search, possibly to move there. A large part of my time will be spent working on job applications. I don't want to spend all of this time at home since it helps to get out and about. I prefer to work in scenic spaces. Any suggestions of where I might go? Thinking along the lines of old libraries or other public areas. [more inside]

Need a smallish office chair solution for limited space

I'd like ideas or recommendations for an office chair that doesn't hurt, with special decorating/space/shopping concerns. Complication: in Greece. After five+ years of computing from my kitchen table while sitting in a regular straight-backed wooden kitchen chair, I find the urgent need to move my workspace ... and get a chair that doesn't assault my back and legs. But it's tricky, because space is limited and many of the usual chair recommendations may not be available. Too many pix and way too much info inside. [more inside]

Prefab Workspaces

I'm researching architecturally designed garden workspaces which don't usually require planning permission along similar lines to this. I know I've seen some really nicely designed examples on the web in the past but I can't seem track them down. Preferably based in the UK, but international examples would be useful for reference as well. Do you know of any good examples, or had experience of putting one up?
