been doing some interesting projects with hyatt. their headquarters fall into the category of "exactly what you'd expect from the brand." on the personal front, it's truly a welcoming experience (as you'd hope from a hospitality company). on the surroundings front, it's pretty immaculate (as you'd hope from the folks who bring you one of the highest honors in architecture). tons of wood perfectly polished. music just loud enough to liven up the lobby. the CD player looks amazing. honestly, even the gaps in the base of the elevator are exceptionally thin. (sounds small, but these things add up.)
this photo is taken from the building's lobby. beautiful trees and a curve just slight enough to hide the "business" part of the lobby - the elevators - until the last moment. very cool.
