Google, Facebook, Uber to Apple, tech giants make big workplace signature statements

Google, following in the tracks of other big tech guns has officially revealed its plans to build a new purpose-built 11-storey London headquarters which will be taller than the Shard skyscraper. The new Google HQ will be located in Central London and is designed by Bjarke Ingels Group and Heatherwick Studios (previously responsible for the 2012 London Olympic Cauldron and new-look London Routemaster buses) after Google scrapped an earlier set of plans by architects AHMM in 2013. The new HQ in London will have a rooftop garden complete with a running track and is being dubbed as a ‘landscraper’, as per The Verge. Construction on the “Zone A” development will start in 2018 at a site overlooking London’s King’s Cross railway station. The building has been designed to be made from a family of interchangeable elements which ensure that the building and its workspace will stay flexible for years to come. Here are other top companies which have to-die-for headquarters:

Apple: Apple Park, the Cupertino-based tech major’s new 175-acre campus, was launched on September 12 and will be ready for employees in April. However, the process of moving over 12,000 people into the sprawling new campus will take more than six months even as construction continues through the summer. This was as per Steve Jobs’ vision of a center for creativity and collaboration and has an iconic ring-shape and resembles a spaceship
