AOL’s New Palo Alto Offices

Posted: 20 Jun 2011 09:26 AM PDT

AOL, the company that now owns the world’s biggest tech blog, gadget blog and political blog, revealed its new headquarters in Palo Alto, California. After putting Studio O+A (the same folks who redid Facebook’s headquarters) in charge, AOL’s new look is a conglomeration of the 1980′s corporate world vibe, raw concepts and materials, with a modern touch.

This was perhaps done on purpose to mimic AOL's business style of transparency. AOL OFFICE HALL AOLMEETINGROOM AOL's new logo is a simple, white font that appears here and there throughout the office. O+A wanted to nurture "collaborative space," so many spaces within the floor plan are designed such as these booths, to encourage collegiality, creativity, group brainstorming, and spontaneous ideas!

It is centrally located to bring together employees from various departments that would not otherwise meet.
