Google Bay View Campus

  • Priscilla Wong

The renowned technology company Google invited Heatherwick studio to design a new campus and headquarters in Mountain View, California, in collaboration with Bjarke Ingels Group. As Google’s first customised office buildings, the design was to physically manifest the company’s distinctive approach to working. As well as creating offices that would adapt to the fast-moving nature of the technology industry, the project also needed to reflect Google’s philosophy of open collaboration. In contrast to its former home in a typically enclosed and car-centric Silicon Valley business park, Google’s workplace was to be a highly flexible space that could respond swiftly to its changing needs and evolve over time.
