Amazon has this week unveiled plans to build a biosphere style Amazon Seattle campus, releasing PDF documents revealing what the finished building will look like once construction is complete.
The new Amazon Seattle campus will include a colossal, mirrored, biosphere styled domes, together with a taller rectangular shaped building next door.
The newAmazon Seattle campus buildings will include dining, meeting, and lounge spaces, together with “a variety of botanical zones modelled on…ecologies found around the globe.” Amazon’s proposal for the new campus building explains:
“While the form of the Amazon Seattle campus 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. To encourage growth and maintain the health of the plants, the building’s interior will include high bay spaces on five floors totaling approximately 65,000 SF and capable of accommodating mature trees. The exterior enclosure will be highly transparent and be composed primarily of multiple layers of glass supported by a metal framework.
The generative idea for the Amazon Seattle campus is that a plant-rich environment has many positive qualities that are not often found in a typical office setting,”-“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.”
