    Hideous.

    Retro was hideous when it was current. It is even more so the second time around.

    Looks more like a club than an office space.

    Mabel’s. Champaign, Illinois, circa 1978. The only problems are there are too many lights and not enough pillows on the floor.

    I dunno. Kinda looks like my offices, except for everything shown, that is. 🙂

    I imagine it would be tough to get any work done around there, except the cubbies are much bigger than anything I’ve ever seen. And clean.

    Looks like a playroom for cats.

    That shag-covered sitting area (appears to be adjacent to the cafeteria) looks like a breeding ground for bacteria.Sick Building Syndrome, anyone?

    Exactly! All we need are a few cadboard boxes, some hollow balls with bells in them, some catnip mice and few balls of yarn.

    Pathetic. Signs of idiocy that they cannot find smarter ways to spend $$.

    Those cubicle walls aren’t high enough. People can see you playing Angry Birds or picking your nose.

    The idea of working while sitting in an orange grove is most appealing, particularly if the glorious smell of orange blossom is replicated.

    Disclaimer: I work at Google, but not in the Tel Aviv office.

    From my experience, that’s probably not a picture of a work area, but a lounge. We have a few of them scattered about. The actual work areas are usually more traditional cubicle-style spaces. (And you can get higher cubicle walls if you want them, FeliciaB. 🙂

    Did James Lileks have anything to do with the design layout? Kooky retro goes to the Middle East.. I guess it is Google and those geeks can and do get away with far too much.. I used google to get the link so I’m hooked..

    Wonder what the China offices look like? Mirroring Mao perhaps?

    Judith: Please be more careful. Ricochet has some older members (me included) who can’t handle that much sensory overload.

    Now that I’ve recovered, I can only say that Google gave its designer a bit too much budget.

    Whew! Can’t say the low walls weren’t stressing me just a bit.
