Facebook is looking to erect a new building across the street from its existing headquarters in California. They've gotten famous architect Frank Gehry (Walt Disney Concert Hall) to design an "anonymous" building that blends into its surroundings. How Frank Lloyd Wright of them.

Facebook’s aversion to panache speaks to the company’s hacker ethos, which emphasizes functionality over form and, at its most insular, heads-down work over outside engagement and communication. In a way, Facebook’s “very anonymous” new building design is like Zuckerberg’s trademark outfit of gray hoodie, jeans and sneakers: an unassuming wrapper around a remarkably capable entity. [Wired]

Wired's got the full scoop and more images of the design.
