Name This Building

Hint: It's in Pioneer Square. Hint 2: It functions like a big terrarium. Sort of.

Also, this is not a test: I don't know what it is, so you'll be telling me. I saw it last night during art walk.

I also believe it was the building in which the office of the 1994 film Disclosure was set which starred Michael Douglas and Demi Moore. Many years ago (1999) when I moved here, I was walking around and saw it too and was like "where have I seen that building before?" Then it dawned on me soon thereafter.

Funny, I was moving my office from the Court in the Square years ago. Hauled a desk through a Wedding reception. Definitely received the icy stare from the bride.

"Court in the Square" is a crap name. I shall call it "The Keyhole."

I think that's the court in the square - I looked at having my wedding reception there a couple of months, ago, but it was way too $$$$$.

Anderson, Koch and Smith designed the Court in the Square by joining the Goldsmith building and the Northcoast building.

That's where Common Ground's offices are.

I don't know the name of the building, but it must be either really drunk or really tired, because it's laying down on its side.

@2 is correct: it's called "Court in the Square", and it is apparently a huge spot for weddings, though all I've ever seen in there is people drinking coffee or waiting for elevators. It's not really a building at all, just an atrium (built in 1985) between the 1900 Northcoast Building on the right and the 1907 Goldsmith Building on the left.

I used to work in that building but I don't remember the name. It's on 2nd between Tiki Bob's and Zeitgeist.

Yes, Court in the Square. I work in this building. They do a lot of weekend weddings in the courtyard/terrarium. It is always awkward when I have to come in to work on a Saturday to cut through a wedding ceremony with my bike.

I don't know, but I used to work in the building on the right side of the atrium.
