Rumour has it that Google has approached celebrated British architect, Thomas Heatherwick, to design its new £1 billion London HQ. Heatherwick is already working on the Californian campus for the tech giant and after Google reportedly rejected a proposal from architecture agency AHMM, it opened up the conversation with Heatherwick.

The impressive plans by Heatherwick Studios for the Californian HQ were recently unveiled, revealing designs for translucent canopies that can have climate control capabilities, along with a host of other high-tech features.
