Designed by world-renowned architect Norman Foster and his firm, London-based Foster + Partners, Fortaleza Hall is a contemporary partner to the innovative buildings and offerings of Frank Lloyd Wright. It earned a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council in 2011.
The 60,000-square-foot facility, which opened in 2010, has two distinct sections: Fortaleza Hall, which provides historical context for the company and the advances that continue to take place, and The Commons, which offers a myriad of employee amenities. Soaring at the building's heart is the replica twin-engine S-38 amphibian plane that Sam Johnson flew to Fortaleza, Brazil in 1998.
I brought home a puzzle for my daughter Beatrice (7 years old here). She had it assembled in 4 minutes. But Lisa still wouldn't let me take her to work .
I didnt set my white balance correctly.
