I Have Seen Your Future Office Building. It Looks A Lot Like This.

Curated by
This isn't just an office — it's a bold statement. Time for your buildings, and city planners, to step their game up.

Welcome to the home of your future office. Behold: The Bullitt Center, located in my hometown of Seattle, Wash., has been designed as the most sustainable commercial building in the world. 

Nailed it:

  • The Bullitt Center uses only recycled rainwater from for the whole building (insert tired, Seattle rain joke here).
  • Too hot? Too cold? How about some motorized windows to control temperature and ventilation?
  • It's entirely solar powered. If Seattle can pull this off, then you're out of excuses, Miami.
  • The building will produce zero waste. As in less than you.
  • Designed to last for 250 years — no big deal.

Watch out, we're dealing with a badass over here: This building's sustainability standards are so tough, it forced the City of Seattle to rewrite some building codes. Now leasing for its Spring 2013 debut, the Bullitt Center will be around long enough to fill vacancies for your great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandchildren's employers.

Next bit of Upworthiness:
