Amazon’s Spheres‏


During the past few years I’ve been watching as Amazon slowly takes over the city. The pace of development, particularly massive high rises, has been incredible, prompting an ongoing debate.

One of the latest additions to the Amazon empire is three interconnecting spherical buildings. Months ago I was admiring the steel structural innards coming together.

Unfortunately, such a cool place won’t be open to the public, as reported in Seattle Weekly, which drew a slew of critical letters and comments. I, too, am concerned about making the city more and more corporate and private, closed off to the masses.
