A Visit to The Spheres in Seattle, Washington

The next time you’re in the Pacific Northwest, please visit The Spheres - it truly is an amazing place.

Recently, while on a business trip to Seattle, I had the opportunity to visit The Spheres for the first time. They're three spherical conservatories that are part of the Amazon headquarters campus. The domes range from three to four stories tall and are covered in pentagonal hexecontahedron steel panels. Designed by NBBJ and the landscape firm, Site Workshop, the structure was created to hold more than 40-thousand plants from the cloud forest regions of more than 30-countries as well as an employee lounge and meeting place for Amazon employees, additional retail stores and an exhibition area on the ground floor. 

Here are just a few of the photos from our tour - enjoy.
