Google just announced details about a beautiful new campus it's planning to develop in Mountain View, California.
The company is submitting plans to develop four sites in Mountain View's North Bayshore.
From the company's official blog:
"The idea is simple. Instead of constructing immoveable concrete buildings, we’ll create lightweight block-like structures which can be moved around easily as we invest in new product areas. (Our self-driving car team, for example, has very different needs when it comes to office space from our Search engineers.) Large translucent canopies will cover each site, controlling the climate inside yet letting in light and air. With trees, landscaping, cafes, and bike paths weaving through these structures, we aim to blur the distinction between our buildings and nature."
This campus is designed by Bjarke Ingels at BIG and Thomas Heatherwick at Heatherwick Studio, and it will be the first time Google has built offices from scratch, instead of taking over previously existing buildings.
