Spaceship, Disrupted

New, 1 comment

Unlike the spaceships, hobbit Walmarts, and crabot-assisted glass tent farms Silicon Valley tech firms like to commission, Samsung's new NBBJ-designed San Jose campus is a veritable skyscraper compared with the valley's normally sprawly compounds. At 10 stories, it's unusually tall, notes Allison Arieff, observing that "the company's decision to go vertical and urban feels far more disruptive than the suburban spaceships envisioned elsewhere in the Valley."
