On the eve of its twentieth anniversary, NVIDIA has announced that it is planning on building a new corporate headquarters in Santa Clara.
Jen-Hsun Huang, the company’s CEO, says the current headquarters is “bursting at the seams” with employees, and “barely has a spare desk.”
NVIDIA’s new campus will be in the shape of a triangle, a shape that is the building block of NVIDIA’s business – computer graphics.
“The design harmonizes smart functionality and a shape that connects with and inspires our employees,” Mr. Huang said in a Wednesday blog post. “Efficient in every way, the design is thoughtful in its use of space, energy, and environment, and, of course, cost.”
“It will stand at the intersection of science and art, just as our work in visual computing does. It will be the symbol, the physical manifestation, of our vision for the company.”
Each building will be 500,000 square feet. The first building is expected to be occupied mid-2015, and the second will be build when growth requires it.
