Architect Gugge Haus says Google Cloud is the right time for him to build a “Guggehaus” (German for ‘gigantic’) office in San Francisco, and to start designing a new headquarters that “is more than a place to do work.”
The building he envisions would be able to house 10,000 people, with a view of the city skyline and an outdoor plaza.
“I think Google Cloud architecture has a really good opportunity to be really powerful for architects and engineers to work on projects that really require a lot of data and data management,” he says.
Google Cloud Architecture is Google’s data warehouse and cloud computing platform that allows for storage, retrieval, and processing of large amounts of data.
In addition to hosting data from the company’s cloud services, Google Cloud can handle real-time data from its own cloud services.
In his latest TED talk, Haus also spoke about how Google Cloud architects can collaborate with other developers, including the architects who are building for the company.
“It’s actually really cool to collaborate with architects,” he explains.
“And then we get the opportunity to see what it looks like.”
Gugges Architect is the third Guggerhaus building to be announced in 2017.
Earlier this year, Google unveiled the “Gigantic” building in Seattle.
Google’s first Gugenhaus building, the former Gugensaus in New York, opened in June 2019.
In August 2018, Google revealed plans to build an office and conference center in the San Francisco Bay Area.
