The Gallery and Video | Proposals for Google's new HQ

Proposed designs for Google’s new home in California have been released.

Dubbed ‘Mountain View’, the internet search giant’s new campus in California would significantly increase the space the organisation has in Silicon Valley.

Designed by architects Thomas Heatherwick and Bjarke Ingels, the buildings would be constructed from lightweight materials that can be used flexibly to meet the needs of the organisation.

Google vice president of real estate David Radcliffe said: “Large translucent canopies will cover each site, controlling the climate inside yet letting in light and air. With trees, landscaping, cafes and bike paths weaving through these structures, we aim to blur the distinction between our buildings and nature.”

Google is now working with Mountain View City Council on the proposal.

Watch Radcliffe, Heatherwick and Ingels discuss the proposed master plan for the new campus in Mountain View below.
