As part of Amazon’s plan to build a new corporate headquarters on three blocks of downtown Seattle, the company recently unveiled plans for a six story-glass structure composed of three giant conjoined spheres.

Intended to be the centerpiece of the new campus, the spheres would allow Amazon employees to meet and work in an airy indoor environment filled with plants and trees.
