Google Unveils Grand Headquarters Design
By Tamara Kisha Tan, 23 Feb 2013
Google, being the behemoth that it is, was bound to have some sort of a Google-Land-type of Headquarters at some point in time.
Set to be dubbed as 'Googleplex', construction for this new mega-town has already began on land that Google reportedly leased from NASA in 2008.
Some plans have been released, and there already have been those commenting that the artists' impressions are far from impressive.
Nevertheless, Google has assured that it's not all just about aesthetics. They've revealed that they've designed Googleplex's insides to be highly conducive for their employees.
If you look closely, you'll see bent rectangles—while these aren't there by chance, they are meant to generate more chance encounters between employees themselves, thereby increasing interaction and minimizing isolation.
Due to this, Google is quite sure that within its 1.1 million square feet HQ, no employee will be more than two-and-a-half minutes away from a fellow colleague.
Googeplex is slated to be completed in 2015.
