Samsung plans new $300 million Silicon Valley campus

Samsung has plans to expand into Silicon Valley with a $300 million new campus in San Jose for its semiconductor division

 

Another tech firm, another imposing architectural creation. Samsung is planning a new $300 million campus for its semiconductor division - a move that would put it 15 miles from Apple's Cupertino HQ.

The render above is one of several of the proposed building (visit Inhabitat for more), which has been designed by global architecture and design firm NBBJ. According to reports, the new building is part of an effort by the Korean company to foster greater innovation.

Of course, it also helps to put Samsung on the map in a very big way in Silicon Valley - the most recognised area of technology development on the planet.

The design is open-air with gardens on each floor and should create enough space for 2,500 employees to enjoy the sports facilities and cafeterias.

The site will feature "collaboration zones" where contended Samsung employees can no doubt congregate and reflect on how successful products like the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 10.1 have been.

Work on the new building is expected to begin in July and will likely take around two years to complete.
