Frank Gehry to design new Facebook Campus25/08/2012
You might think Facebook's Mark Zuckerburg would be feeling the stress at the moment, with pressure on his CEO position at the social network he founded, but he seemed pretty relaxed and happy today when he gave details through the site of the new Facebook campus to be designed by the great Frank Gehry. This is likely to be yet another reason Facebook will not be forgotten in a hurry.
"I'm excited to work with Frank Gehry to design our new campus. The idea is to make the perfect engineering space: one giant room that fits thousands of people, all close enough to collaborate together. It will be the largest open floor plan in the world, but it will also have plenty of private, quiet spaces as well. The roof of the building will be a park that blends into the community with a long walking trail, a field and lots of places to sit. From the outside it will appear as if you're looking at a hill in nature."
Stay tuned for more details as they come to hand.
