Segal Enterprises, ahead of their time.

The Seattle Times writes that a Seattle firm is planning an office building that features a "passive cooling" blueprint --no air conditioning and windows that open.

If if can be done in L.A., why not in Seattle?

In 1985, Robert Segal, engineer, one time president of Holistic Health Association, psychologist and owner of Segal Enterprises, broke ground for his firm's smart building in Santa Monica, CA. All offices had windows, either on the periphery or onto the court yard. Innovative, healthful work environment, and that in Los Angeles, 20 years before Weber+Thompson come with their plans for south Lake Union office building.
