Google opens new Los Angeles campus

And, a man walks past the iconic pair of giant binoculars designed by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen at an entrance of Google's new LA home. The 100,000 square-foot campus was designed by architect Frank Gehry. Around 500 employees develop video advertising for YouTube, parts of the Google+ social network and the Chrome Web browser at the site. (REUTERS/Lucy Nicholson)


  1. Wow, it is about time someone cool took over that place :)

    That particular building is about 15-20 years old. I remember when it went in, they bulldozed a lumber yard and the ‘end’ of the Southern Pacific branch line that crossed Pacific Avenue.

  2. Besides being the former HQ for Chiat/Day this was also the Razorfish LA office from 1999-2000. Great drafty, leaky Gehry building.
