It looks like Facebook is getting yet another fancy facelift. And no, it’s not in the form of a shiny-new feature or a doodad that serves a questionable function. The sprawling Menlo Park-based tech company hired lauded architect Frank Gehry (whose merits include the Walt Disney Concert Hall and Hotel Marqués de Riscal in Elciego, Spain) to design a new campus addition.
Apparently, the 420,000-square-foot building will be a giant, warehouse-like space (largest open-floor plan in the world!) featuring a living roof, separated work-group “neighborhood” nooks, cafés, lounges, and of course, graffiti-splashed walls. The building is slated to begin construction spring ’13. We can’t wait to peep the progress, even though, admittedly, we have a major case of office envy! (Bloomberg)
