Beautiful Architecture

Amazon is joining the party of novelty headquarters
by designing its new Seattle office in the form of a huge,
spherical greenhouse. Formed of three interconnected
glass bubbles, rising up to 30m tall, the complex will
reside amongst grassy mounds in downtown Seattle.

This little spherical utopia is conceived as the social heart
of a vast Amazonworld, covering over three city blocks.
I’ve decided to take on the task of photographing the
construction of this amazing project and create a building
timeline to not only share the ever-changing city skyline but
the effect it will have on the surrounding neighborhood.
Although these first images are random, as I go along the
timeline I hope to capture some from different perspectives.

Let the fun begin.

Beautiful Mid-Century Architecture

Back to my documentation of the disappearing act of beautiful
authentic Cascade Neighborhood as moves in.
Today I highlight the mid-century building across the street
from the Cascade Park and P-Patch. It’s the old
Central Supply Center for Seattle School District built in 1955.
I love the rhythm of the roof pattern, classic 1950s architecture.
I discovered this great website about South Lake Union
which is where changes are occurring almost daily.
