Amazon Building "Glass Nature Complex" For Workers

Amazon is placing spheres in downtown Seattle that will function as high-tech greenhouses, featuring plenty of fancy plant life meant to inspire the company’s employees. More than 3,000 species are being grown, though it isn’t clear if they are all meant for this "iconic" structure.

The real point of the spheres is how Amazon wants to use the nature on the inside to inspire employees. When they open in early 2018, the spheres will be packed with a plant collection worthy of top-notch conservatories, allowing Amazon employees to amble through tree canopies three stories off the ground, meet with colleagues in rooms with walls made from vines and eat kale Caesar salads next to an indoor creek.
