Today the Department of Planning and Development approved Amazon's plan to build their space-age three orb headquarters on 2101 7th Ave in the Denny Triangle.
The plans, which were announced in May, outline the structure as a greenhouse-style biodome capable of sustaining full grown trees and other various plant life. "The generative idea is that a plant-rich environment has many positive qualities that are not often found in a typical office setting," the lengthy proposal document reads. "While the form of the building will be visually reminiscent of a greenhouse or conservatory, plant material will be selected for its ability to co-exist in a microclimate that also suits people.”
Who wouldn't want to work in a geodesic city-forest? Here's to a future Seattle cityscape full of epic, verdant bio-globes.
