This geodesic spherical model depicts the painted steel superstructure of proposed biodomes • August 19, 2013 architectural (NBBJ) proposal for update to Amazon's Seattle headquarters campus • Block 19 of the Rufus Project • Geometric polyhedral basis; pentagonal hexecontahedron • 3D-modeled in SketchUp • Exported image post-processed in Photoshop, to slightly-enhance edges • The biodome may never be built, as depicted in the proposal, but it remains an intriguing "organic" design • Artist depictions of the biodomes, and the full architectural proposal (PDF format,) are available at: mynorthwest.com/?nid=11&sid=23…
Nice design. I like the "truss" appearance.
Credit the architects at NBBJ. (I'm simply a good mimic.)
To me, the design brought to mind the organic structure of diatoms.
