Here’s a First Look at Facebook’s Amazing New Campus
August 28, 2012
Zuckerberg wanted the space to be one big, open building.
But a long, rectangular space would feel oppressive. So Gehry proposed angling the walls to create a more human sense of scale.
Here’s the results: rows of desks and meeting rooms clustered throughout the building. You’ll be able to walk from one end to the other without passing through a door. Note the looping ramp in the upper left—that gets you from the basement to the first floor to the roof.
The roof will be planted with grass, trees, and a vegetable garden. It’s not just pretty—green roofs cut heating and cooling.
