Posted on Thu, Oct 24, 2013 at 11:00 AM

DAY ARCHITECT'S OFFICE INTERIOR
A MAN in a dark suit stands at the head of a boardroom table. Other SUITS fill the seats.

SUIT
Gentlemen, this is a golden opportunity. Three landmark buildings. Right downtown. Highly visible. The potential to create an iconic hotel is at our fingertips. But...
(BEAT)
....we need ideas. Not just ordinary ideas. We need game changers.

Far down the table, a hand shoots up.

SUIT
Yes. Marty.

MARTY ARCHITECT
I see rectangles. Towering rectangles of red brick. And mirror glass, and, and.....

SUIT

MARTY ARCHITECT
Concrete.

SUIT
Eureka. You've done it again Marty. Draw up the plans. Who knows, maybe, just maybe.....
(BEAT)
....the Russians will come back.
