Facebook moves to new Gehry-designed office






Facebook has moved into its new Menlo Park headquarters in Silicon Valley (California), known as MPK20 which has the largest open floor plan in the world. Designed by the far-famed architect Frank O Gehry, the 4,30,000-square-foot space, spread over 22 acres, is LEED-certified and boasts a nine-acre green roof (complete with work cabanas) and a underground parking lot. The roof — the park on it creates a half-mile loop and was inspired by the Highline in New York City — will also be home to cafes and full-sized trees. The staff of over 2,800 employees will work in one enormous room, keeping Facebook’s open work environment policy which fosters a community feeling and helps employees to work better in a group. The building also boasts of 15 custom, colourful art installations from local artists as part of the Facebook Artist in Residence programme.
