Amazon Spheres Tour

What: Come tour The Spheres, one of the more unique sites on Amazon’s campus! The Spheres are an active workplace for Amazonians and are home to more than 40,000 plants from the cloud forest regions of over 30 countries. In its design, Amazon was inspired by biophilia, the idea that humans possess an inherent love of nature and other life forms. What began as a concept for adding plants to the workplace evolved over time into a lush botanical conservatory home to thousands of plants and trees. Today, The Spheres offer Amazonians a connection to nature in the heart of Seattle. Please bring government ID to check in for your tour!”
