Computer graphics firm Nvidea will build a futuristically designed new campus across the street from its current Santa Clara, CA headquarters at 2701 San Tomas Expressway.
"The new NVIDIA building will capture the ambition and imagination of our people. It will stand at the intersection of science and art, just as our work in visual computing does," the company said.
The company "barely has a spare desk" in its current quarters. Meanwhile, the company that started with three employees 20 years ago now has 8,000 workers spread over 40 locations, according to an entry on the company's blog.
Along the way, Nvidea has invented the GPU, revolutionized gaming, pioneered motion picture special effects and powered the world’s fastest supercomputer as well as processors that power life-saving CT scanners, weather simulations for TV stations, the latest generation of cars, and even helped navigate a rover on Mars.
The company has employees in major cities around the world, including Taipei, Helsinki, Shanghai, Paris, Beijing, Boston, Hong Kong, Bangalore, Tokyo, Moscow, Cambridge and Sophia, among others.
A team at architecture giant Gensler, led by Harvard-trained architect Hao Ko, will design the campus.
