Today was the open house for those of us who will be moving into a remodeled floor at Intel’s Hawthorn Farm campus. I went, found my new cube, and took some pictures.1
It doesn’t look much like the Intel Conan O’Brien visited a while back.2 No gray walls, no gray cubicles, no blue-gray carpeting.
It’s part of Intel’s continuing effort to have attractive, functional work spaces. The walls are a little higher than Intel’s first attempts at this, and there are more small, unreservable conference rooms.3 It will look and sound a lot different next week when it’s filled with people, computers, and activity.
