Amazon new bubbly HQ coming

Since it's been a slow news week:

http://news.cnet.com/2300-1023_3-10018734.html

Quote:
A Seattle design review board has approved Amazon's plan to build what promises to be a stunning, five-story office building distinguished by three intersecting spheres. Amazon also will build a 38-story tower on the same block.



http://www.geekwire.com/2013/images-...-mature-trees/

Quote:
The goal of the new spherical space is to create an environment where employees can “work and socialize in a more natural, park-like setting,” according to documents released in front of tonight’s meeting.
“The generative idea is that a plant-rich environment has many positive qualities that are not often found in a typical office setting,” according to the design documents.
“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,” the documents continue. “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.”

Something makes me think that Amazon has a perspective problem.

Spoiler:

Double entendre intended.

Oh man... I was such in a downer mood, until I opened this thread. Thanks for making me feel better!

I like how the inside IS an Amazon.

The idea that led to the concept.
In this case, they wanted a green outdoorsy environment. That led to the greenhouse concept which led to buidings inside a building which led to the linked domes.
Architect-speak.
Wouldn't want to talk english, now would they?

Ah I understand. I have seen "formative" used in this sense before: "The formative idea". Still quite obtuse for me.
