The Most Indoors

[Image: Inside NYC’s old post office, Instagram by BLDGBLOG].

“Suppose we define an indoors number as the number of doorways that one must pass through to get from a given location to the outdoors. What location has the highest number?

What room in the world is the furthest indoors?

  1. Some water faring vessel, perhaps? All those bulkheads to keep hull breaches contained… I always feel the furthest from the outside when I'm several decks down inside a big ship.

  2. Interesting idea. But what other ways could one define an Indoor value? What's more indoors, a room connected to the outside by a ten-foot hallway containing 10 sliding doors? A room 1 mile underground connected to the surface by a single elevator*? A room one-story underground, connected to the surface by a single elevator that requires an hour to transverse the distance?

    * Does an elevator door count as one door or two? While technically a loop (you go through and exit the same door), that same door occupies two different physical locations.
