Campuses, headquarters and ordinary office buildings for companies in the Net Economy constructed in various parts of the world by different architectural practices all seem to share a singlecommon denominator: creative environments, meaning informal spaces that encourage people to interact, an "old" recipe for even the most cutting-edge tech companies. We take a look at some recent projects presented in the pages of Floornature and Livegreenblog.
The project covered most recently is the new research and development centre built for Adobe Systems in Noida, India by SWBI Architects. On the other side of the world, in the United States, another campus was built for Adobe Systems near Salt Lake City, with architecture by WRNS Studio and interior design by Rapt Studio. Geremia Design took care of the interior design of the Dropbox offices in the historic China Basin Landing Building in San Francisco. In the same city, Schwartz and Architecture and the interior designers of All of the Above and First Office converted a brick warehouse into the Pinterest headquarters. Going on to Europe, Evolution Design and Henry J. Lions Architects designed the Google campus in Dublin, the European headquarters of the American giant of the net economy.
