Facebook Building 20

Facebook has taken the open-studio workspace concept to a whole new level with the help of Architect Frank Gehry.  Nicknamed MPK20, this 433,000-square-foot, 1,500-foot-long structure is actually one continuous open work space, accessed by meandering paths, and interspersed with micro-kitchens and conference rooms.  The facility also boasts an expansive green roof and trail for walking meetings, and a modern cafeteria that doubles as an office-wide meeting space.

The project is a testament to the popularity of open office spaces where creative ideas can flow freely, and collaboration is both planned and spontaneous.  Wether you are a multi-million dollar corporation or a start-up taking advantage of a creative co-working location to help get the ideas flowing – open office spaces look like they are here to stay!
