Google, Inc., has transformed the way millions of Internet users around the globe access information every day. Founded in 1998, the company has married a simple, easy-to-use interface with complex engineering, making it the leading source for news, images, and locations on the Web. The ingenuity of Google’s design extends to all of its products, such as Google Maps and Google Earth, which offer a new paradigm for how users navigate the world and provide unprecedented access to interactive technologies. Google is also recognized for rethinking conventional notions of corporate culture and the workplace. At the “Googleplex,” Google’s headquarters, creativity and play are central to the company’s philosophy. Google’s staff take creature comforts as seriously as productivity, as one cannot be had without the other. Google was featured in the 2006 National Design Triennial.
