I had the pleasure of touring the new Bullitt Center
tonight with other members of the IIDA. Kudos to
Robert Pena, an architecture professor at the UW
and consultant for the Integrated Design Lab, for
leading the group.
The Bullitt Center is the greenest commercial
building in the world. Hopefully it starts a trend.
These exterior “blinds” open and close according
to the level of sunlight. When we arrived they were
closed; as the sun was setting a short time later
they automatically opened to allow more light
into the space.
Iron door at the Henry Art Gallery, Seattle
Today was one of those all too familiar drizzly days
when I just wanted to be anywhere else but Seattle.
The remedy? A field trip to the Henry Art Gallery where
I was treated to some James Turrell and a beautiful
photographic exhibit displaying some stunning images.
