Once again we are the object of a flurry of press attention– which thanks to the technology of modern journalism pretty much exposes our work to the world. Magazines in Russia and Mexico are interested in the Aol complex. Australia wants to hear about Yelp. China is keen on Dreamhost and Square. When in 2009 our Facebook HQ attracted international notice literally dozens of publications ran feature stories on it. O+A was suddenly on the lips of design enthusiasts from Kazakhstan to Chile, Hong Kong to Israel. We’ve been ”global” ever since.
Here, then, a few of our recent appearances.
The Contemporist blogged the community spirit of common areas in Aol’s building at 395 Page Mill in Palo Alto. (Click here).
Architecture Magazine was intrigued by the same series of spaces. (Click here).
As was the Australian magazine and blog Offscreen. (Click here).
Offscreen, which focuses on the people who design websites and apps, is published out of Melbourne. So is Treadlie which deals with cyclists and cycling and which took an interest in the bike racks we installed at Yelp. That article is not available online, but here’s a sample of the mag: (Click here).
Meanwhile in Russia ArchPlatforma featured Dreamhost in what we assume is a favorable article (though we don’t have anyone here who can decipher the Cyrillic alphabet) and is next planning to publish Aol. (Click here).
Spaseeba, ArchPlatforma. Spaseeba, everyone. (That’s “thank you”).
