OPEN HOUSE 2016 - 40 Minute Tour Facebook International Headquarters Dublin
Facebook International Headquarters Dublin was designed as offices by Gehry Partners LLP in 2014 in a building that is part of a larger Daniel Libeskind scheme at Grand Canal Docks. Frank Gehry is one of America’s best-known architects. A champion of expressivity and iconic design, Gehry's work reflects a spirit of experimentation coupled with a respect for the demands of professional practice. Gehry's style disrupts expectations and he has remained largely unaligned with broader stylistic movements. The Dublin office design reflects Facebook's open culture and Mark Zuckerberg outlined the Facebook/Gehry goal to create the perfect space for teams to cooperate and innovate; "There are lots of small spaces where people can work together, and it's easy for people to move around and collaborate with anyone here."
