Google's new campus plans hint at staggering ambitions

Plans call for moveable lightweight structures and translucent canopies

  • The Green Loop, a circuit for bikes and pedestrians. A solar canopy, Google says, produces energy and also protects bicyclists from the rain.

  • A rendering of the entry lobby of Google's proposed Landings building. Consolidated parking would sit below the building.

  • Within the canopy, Google says, building segments can form small villages where employees can work or relax.

  • Google's planed canopies can regulate climate, pollution, and sound, the company says.

  • In Google's plans, this building’s translucent canopy can lift up to allow a path to go through the center of the building, with cafes and local shops on the lower levels.
