Google's New California Campus Will Be More Like a Sci-Fi City Than an Office

Biodome-like structures to owl habitats

Google has just unveiled plans for its new Mountain View, Calif., campus—and they don't skimp on the sci-fi. The designs, by architects Bjarke Ingels at BIG and Thomas Heatherwick at Heatherwick Studio, feature transparent, biodome-like buildings, bike paths, running tracks, meadows and a babbling brook—along with a public plaza with retail space for shops and cafes.
