Today we visit the Bullitt Center, a newly opened office building in Capital Hill in Seattle, Washington. This isn’t just any office building, its the “greenest office building in the world.” Complete with a roof of solar panels, composting toilets and 250 year lifespan, the center is designed to function like a rainforest.
I visited the center during my November trip to Seattle and loved its environmental aspirations and exemplary Pacific Northwest design. Gone are the days of ‘green’ buildings looking like ugly spaceships.
In August I will be moving north to Seattle to work in an architecture firm. Looking forward to the upcoming adventures…but before that happens I will be graduating this weekend and traveling in Turkey for three weeks! Keep you posted on the paintings, projects and adventures.
