The new Facebook HQ is every office worker’s worst nightmare

The new Facebook HQ is every office worker’s worst nightmare

The Wall Street Journal has an architecture review of Facebook’s new Frank Gehry-designed HQ and it sounds like it’ll be a very intense place to work:

The headquarters space is a soaring fishbowl, a contiguous 434,000 square feet on one floor. No one has a private office, so that everyone, including Mr. Zuckerberg, is on view, accessible.

Anyone who’s worked in an open plan office – which is most people now – will know how difficult it can be to concentrate with so much hustle and bustle happening around you.

Imagine how much harder that’ll be in Facebook’s vast hangar for hackers.
