Facebook Charrette: New Headquarters Could Reinvigorate a City
This June, Facebook will move its corporate headquarters to the former campus of Sun Microsystems in Menlo Park.
On Saturday, a group of approximately 150 architects, planners, and design professionals got together to brainstorm how to create "an overall sense of place for that part of town," writes Patrick May. Menlo Park was described by an architect from San Jose as "essentially the middle of nowhere." Community members are hopeful that the presence of Facebook will bring positive change to their city.
