September 19, 2012

In January of 1990, Ross Miller spoke to Gehry at length for Interview. Gehryhad just won architecture’s highest honor The Pritzker Prize, but thebuildings Gehry’s most known for had yet to glimmer in our skies. The news that Gehry will design Facebook’s new 420, 000 square foot campus extension in Menlo Park, Silicon Valley is of no surprise. The structure boasts the largest open floor plan in the world and a roof that curves and blends into the hillside covered with trees, where collaboration and ingenuity will be fostered while providing thecommunity with public walking trails.
