Facebook’s International Headquarters in Dublin was designed as offices by Gehry Partners LLP in 2014, the building is part of a larger Daniel Libeskind scheme for the Grand Canal Dock area. Frank Gehry is one of America’s best-known architects, the headquarters follows the spirit of experimentation of Gehry’s previous works. His style disrupts expectations, and he has remained largely unaligned with broader stylistic movements throughout his career. Facebook’s ‘open culture’ policy is facilitated by the creation of spaces for teams to co-operate 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.” The interiors are functional and minimalist with a bright glass clad exterior. Studio Libeskind also created several soaring glass façades, which surround the public plaza at Grand Canal Dock, which was designed by Martha Schwartz in 2010.
