The Google midwest headquarters project covered six floors of a flagship building in Chicago’s thriving Fulton Market District. Forcade Associates collaborated with VOA and Google on all of the environmental graphics for the new office meant to connect ambitious millennials to the company and the city with which they live.
Each of the six floors had its own vibe - from movie stills of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and the Blues Brothers to the city’s most famous icons like the Navy Pier Ferris Wheel and Buckingham Fountain. These images provided some privacy to meeting rooms, speakable landmarks for room names and beautiful vistas from the central stair. It’s graphics like these, both well-known and hidden gems, that make the office a place you want to be.
