In a recent design project for Google, Mexican design studio SPACE paid homage to Mexico City by filling the company's headquarters with replicas of surrounding landmarks. One of their open meeting areas is modeled after Chapultepec park, one of the largest city parks in the Western Hemisphere.
There is a "lake" with a tree and rope swings, turf floors, a yellow taxi for "private phone conversations," and a red subway car that houses the server. In the "tech talk" area, the floor features the Google Map of the city, and the words "Teatro Blanquita" (Whitey Theater) appears over one of their meeting rooms. SPACE really went for it with this design, but do we expect anything less for a Google environment? Check out a few of the pictures above and head to Designboom to tour the rest of the space.
