Friday just a week ago...

...Lauren and I went to IBM's Silicon Valley Lab. Also known, not surprisingly as SLV, the campus was designed back in the late 60's-early 70's out of shiny steel and bright colors and was placed, unintuatively, in the middle of farmland and cow fileds and rolling brown that are occassionally green hills. A beautiful contrast.

We went to have lunch with David AND to see his new with-a-view office and so, I took photos.
Who here among us is surprised?

There are four towers, in a cross formation, each with it's own color. In the background is the Red Tower first from ground level and next from the third story of the Teal Tower

Where dark teal and ligth teal intersect is David's new tower. Before he was in orange. Or was it blue?

And, leaving the best for last, the view from David's new office. He told us that when he arrived around 7:45am, this scene was full of mist. Nice if you can get it and, frankly, he's worked hard to get it so, way to go, David!!

And, as is often said, the photo doesn't do it just! And like I said, just a little envious :)

I'
I've always read that Silicon Valley campuses are lovely, and your pictures confirm it. The view from David's window is what I always wanted when I worked and never had. Good for him!

What surprises me is how green the campus is. The nearest hill, on the right in the picture, is the brown I associate with summer in the SF area, but the lawns could be in Pennsylvania, they're so green. Do they water? Is this a problem? FanSee

Re: I'
IBM's is especially pretty because they were here before this was really Silicon Valley thereby staking their claim to primo land earlier on. Also, a few days before the photo from David's office was take, it rained. I mean it seriously rained for four to five hours!!! And so, many formerly iffy landscapes looked pretty for awhile. Plus they use recycled water which helps very much.
