By Staff  |  02/28/2015

Google has revealed plans for a new headquarters in Mountain View, California, complete with a flexible biodome.

According to Techcrunch, the tech giant is partnering with Bjarke Ingels (of BIG and Thomas Heatherwick of Heatherwick Studio) for the development, which offers an alternative to permanent buildings.

The lightweight structures are meant to provide shape-shifting environments by allowing them to be movable for a variety of purposes, such as making way for Google's self-driving cars or expanding the area for a new wing.

With the new headquarters, Google hopes to build a campus that seamlessly interacts with its surroundings, and be open to all employees as well as the public.
