Architectural Innovation: Amazon's Biomorphic Spherical Headquarters in Seattle

Architectural Innovation: Amazon's Biomorphic Spherical Headquarters in Seattle | Architecture | Scoop.it

On Tuesday, the online everything store Amazon.com submitted a new proposal for offices in downtown Seattle, featuring three biomorphic, spherical buildings.

The central element of NBBJ’s proposal for Amazon’s headquarters is a trio of conjoined Catalan-sphere modules, each built with a structural-steel skeleton. According to the proposal, which is the second submission to reach Seattle City Hall, these spheres would range from 80 to 95 feet in height and contain five floors of office space. The rounded, pentagonal facets of the spheres would meet in star-shaped intersections.

These will be the new icons for Seattle instead of the fish market. Very cool.

These will be the new icons for Seattle. It is about time we see something besides flying fish.

Over Water by Design Workshop

Over Water by Design Workshop | Architecture | Scoop.it

“To build on the lake surrounded by mountains is always a challenge, cause whatever one builds and however beautiful it may be it still takes away that much from nature.

The strategy then is to build a glass house perched on the land and providing privacy for the inhabitants, at the same time to make sure the lake view gets highlighted from inside for the inhabitants

The structure is wood steel and glass, supported on 2 RCC columns, perched like a bird on land.”
