The VA Hospital of Seattle opened it’s brand new Emergency Department last month. Designed by HDR Architecture the new ED is pretty high tech inside and out.
Of particular awesomeness is the sweeping front elevation: a wall of thick glass containing hundreds of LED lights that can all be independently controlled. By day the glass is a calm light blue color, but come nightfall the entire front facade can display any color in any pattern one chooses (that would be the one who knows how to work all the buttons and dials on the control panel of course).

I recently photographed the new Umpqua Bank flagship location on Queen Anne. The interiors of the newly remodeled Umpqua Bank locations are the result of a collaboration between Ditroen and the Miller Hull Partnership and are very cool and “un-bank-like,” with free wi-fi laptop tables, kid friendly play/hangout areas, and a coffee and snack station. The Queen Anne location even has a projection screen hooked up to a Wii!

View from my seat as I bid farewell to sunny SoCal. Spent some time this week in Newport Beach photographing a new residential project for Graham Architecture.
