Google recently unveiled the plans for its new headquarters, located in Mountain View, California. The tech giant is partnering with Bjarke Ingels of BIG and Thomas Heatherwick of Heatherwick Studio for the development, and this will apparently be its first time designing and building an office location from scratch. Ingels and Heatherwick have designed a series of flexible structures that resemble a geodesic-dome that wraps around the headquarters. These lightweight structures are meant to provide shape-shifting environments by lending themselves movable for any purposes, such as making way for Google’s self-driving cars, or expanding the area for a new wing. With the new headquarters, Google hopes to build a campus that seamlessly interacts with its surroundings, and it is this impermanence that fulfills such a requirement and is what makes the design so unique. The headquarter areas will be open to all employees as well as the public.
