Google’s Futuristic “Buildings”
Google had just announced that they are designing and building new office space at their headquarters in Menlo Park California. Google did submit their building plans to the Mountain View city council for approval. “It’s the first time we’ll design and build offices from scratch and we hope these plans by Bjarke Ingels at BIG and Thomas Heatherwick at Heatherwick Studio will lead to a better way of working.” according to Google’s ofiicial blog.
Natural Office Space
For its new office space, Google is creating lightweight structures that can be easily moved around should a need arises. Those new sites will be covered by translucent canopies, which allow light and air in and provide a controlled climate inside.
Google is planning to “blur the distinction between our buildings and nature”, by providing landscaping, trees, gardens, bike trails, and cafes!
