High-Tech Hippies: Google and Apple Headquarters Are Shapeshifted Communes?

It may sound unlikely, but there is in fact a strong connection between the utopian movements of the ’60s and the tech industry; it’s a topic that’s been well explored by academics, most notably in Stanford professor Fred Turner’s wonderful 2006 history “From Counterculture to Cyberculture.”

In a new T Magazine feature, writer Nikal Saval takes a look at how and why the recently revealed plans for the new campuses of Google, in Mountain View, Calif., designed by Bjarke Ingels and Thomas Heatherwick, and Apple, in Cupertino, from Sir Norman Foster, look lifted straight from the 1960s.
