Amazon unveils‘rainforest’campus
    2018-January-31  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

Amazon has finally opened the doors on its new US$4 billion “rainforest” campus in Seattle.

At an unveiling event Monday, CEO Jeff Bezos took to the podium to introduce the firm’s new office space, confined within three massive plant-lined glass domes dubbed the “Spheres.” And, just as with Amazon’s smart home speakers, the CEO demonstrated how summoning Alexa will light up a blue ring at the top of the dome and the voice assistant will respond to open it.

There are more than 400 species of plants, and the firm is hoping the design will give employees more opportunity to reflect and have chance encounters that could inspire new projects.

The company’s hard-working employees will be able to take a break from the daily grind by walking along stone pathways, observing mini-waterfalls, and enjoying the plant life from exotic* locales* in South America.

The massive project includes three office buildings in the shape of spheres. The climate will be controlled while the humidity* will be 60 percent.

There is even a ventilation system that simulates* an outdoor breeze. Ventilation ducts pump in fresh air for the benefit of a five-story wall of plants. There is also a meeting place for employees known as “the bird’s nest,” which looks like a wooden treehouse suspended in the air.(SD-Agencies)
