Facebook’s Green Menlo Park Campus expansion

Facebook is adding a new building to its Menlo Park campus that will house 3,400 engineers. The building is designed by internationally-renowned architect Frank Gehry, whose work includes the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, 8 Spruce Street in New York, and the Dancing House in Prague, Czech Republic.

The proposed design is quite eco-friendly, with a massive park-like, tree and grass-lined green roof featuring a ‘park benches’ and a ‘walking trail’ on top! In addition, Facebook submitted proposals to the city to allow its 6,000 planned new workforce to travel between old and new campuses to via a tunnel designed for pedestrian and bike traffic.
