There’s an article in today’s Daily Journal of Commerce (online access for paid subscribers only) about the Bullitt Foundation’s intent to develop the C.C. Attle’s site, which they bought a year ago, with a “uniquely Northwest building.”
The Bullitt Foundation is looking
“not just for a piece of sculpture” but for a building that performed a series of technically rigorous functions in geology, hydrology and solar applications.
Bullitt’s CEO (and Earthday founder) Denis Hayes said he
imagines the building being a living structure with many controls and sensors. Parts of the building may even respond differently to the environment. For example, one side of the building faces a busy arterial, another a green park-like area and a third side faces a quiet street. It is “entirely possible,” he said, that each side will look and function differently.
They have selected an architect (Miller/Hull) but are still looking for project partners. They hope to have early design drawings by late summer.
