This urban greenhouse will serve as a sanctuary for Amazon employees in Seattle, Washington.

The structure will consist of three spheres that "will house more than 3,000 species of plants" -- both common and endangered alike. The urban greenhouse will have rickety bridges suspended high off the ground and tree houses in which employees can hold meetings and collaborative sessions. The "green" community will be situated close to the Amazon office and was designed in the hopes of creating an escape for employees where they can relieve stress levels and enjoy a unique work experience.

These spherical greenhouses may serve to improve productivity by providing a relaxing environment and a "change of pace" for Amazon employees.
