Facebook Hires Frank Gehry To Design New Campus

Renowned architect Frank Gehry has been commissioned by Facebook to build its expansion of its campus in Menlo Park, California.

The new west campus will host a park atmosphere, having tree- and grass-roofs, benches, and a walking trail—and accommodate outdoor cafes, and barbecues.

Facebook also plans to have a tunnel designed for pedestrians and bikes, for its employees to travel between the new and old east campus it currently occupies.

The company hopes to house 3,400 engineers in the new office building, which will occupy 10 acres, one day.
