Yesterday, Samsung opened a brand-new 102,193m² building in San Jose. Home to its American R&D teams, it will house 2000 employees. Why not take a look around?
The new 10-storey building was designed by architecture firm NBBJ and began construction in 2013. It will house the South Korean company's west-coast R&D teams, and Samsung claims the space will offer them "impromptu, spur-of-the-moment interactions that are the genesis of many great ideas." As well as design offices and lab space, the building will also contain U.S. sales and marketing staff, too.
It doesn't seem to be quite as pretty as Apple's forthcoming flying saucer is expected to be. But then, it only cost $US300 million; Apple's is set to cost at least $US5 billion.
