ON THE COVER:
Completed last September, Google's new office in Playa Vista, Calif., involved converting the historic, 750-foot-long hangar built by industrialist Howard Hughes to house the Spruce Goose prototype airlift flying boat. The reconstruction includes generous spaces for work, meetings, events, and amenities. The all-wood spine that supports the building's ceiling was deconstructed and rebuilt with noncombustible materials that were then reclad with refurbished wood panels. More on page 32.
