Fast Company: He Builds CompanyFast Company: He Builds Company Towns
Inspired by social anthropologists and city planners, Ludwig is taking the old idea that a well-planned town creates a vibrant community and applying it to a new office park that will house thousands of Cisco Systems' employees along with several other companies. When finished ( the completion schedule is subject to the economy ), Coyote Valley Research Park will look like a New Age version of a farming city. There will be neighborhoods, nature trails, and parking lots that mimic the look of plowed fields. Ludwig has designed barnlike buildings with minimalist silos and airy green and white structures inspired by the greenhouses that dominated the area when it was an orchard and farming community.
