Seattle, USA, has been one office building richer since the end of this year. The 2+U building on the corner of Second and University does not excel in its height or non-traditional materials, but passers-by are still fascinated at first sight.
The 2+U hi-rise building, designed by the developer Skanska USA and the architectural studio Pickard Chilton, consists of two towers. The higher of them has 38 floors and with a bit of exaggeration, you could say that where the surrounding buildings end, 2+U begins.
Because the first floor almost floats on twenty-six-meter V-shaped pillars. The 20 enormous columns that hold the tower aloft and ensure that the under-the-tower oasis has enough room for its own two- and three-story buildings.
