Nvidia’s new HQ back on schedule

Futuristic apparently

A year after moth balling its “futuristic new office project in Santa Clara” Nvidia. is again ready to get to work and start building again.

According to Biz Journals  the graphics chipmaker confirmed on Tuesday that it would soon start demolition to make way for the 500,000-square-foot, triangular building at Walsh Avenue and San Tomas Expressway.

Nvidia launched the project in 2013 and it was pushed as one of these innovative design buildings which was supposed to make Silicon Valley look a little more interest.

Designers said one inspiration for the project's look was the polygon — the building block of computer graphics, although we thought it looked a little like a cancerous melanoma a mate had cut out.  .

The enormous, 250,000-square-foot floor plates, united by a massive stairs, were to facilitate employee interactions. Nothing happened and it was thought that the project had suffered a bad case of cut backs.

Nvida said that it was just trying to get the design right, although cynics suggested that it was just waiting to see what AMD did first..

Now it seems that the way is clear and building has started.
