Workplace of the Future, or Living on Mars?
Amazon opened its new downtown Seattle office space in January, revealing a campus that looks more like a rainforest than a typical cubicle farm.
The reveal of the new Sphere Complex comes after the world's largest online retailer spent seven years planning and constructing a cutting-edge space that it hopes will help spark its employees' creativity. Rather than the usual mix of closed hallways and traditional conference rooms, the space features winding walkways that lead to hidden nooks and open spaces peppered with tables and chairs. And this being a tech office, the wifi is even accessible in "the nest"—a meeting space ensconced in a wooden structure that resembles a bird's nest.
