Microsoft Building 110th Ave NE

This is the entrance to one of the new Mircrosoft buildings, located in downtown Bellevue. It's located next to the Transit Center and across the street from Bellevue City Hall on 110th Ave NE. The building has been underconstruction for the last two years. I've appreciated seeing the construction from start to (almost) finish for this +20 story building.

At the corner of Garden Way in Woodiniville sits a plaza that is the central hub of the town. Across the street from here is an outdoor area with tables and chairs at a Jamba Juice. Here is where I sat and drew the building across the street which houses a Seattle Icon that is Starbucks and a delicious Mongolian Grill restaurant.

Lunch Time Sketch

This is a sketch of the courtyard at Bellevue City Hall. In my previous post I showed a drawing facing North at the same location. In this drawing I've turned to face South from the same vantage point. On the right of the drawing is a cement water fall which fills the "urban river" that continues to the building on the North side of the courtyard (see previous post). In the background, trellises are shown which continue left to the City Hall building entrance. The design of the trellises and repetition create an interesting structure and define the pathway to the entrance.
