Nike reveals plans for world HQ

Sportswear giant Nike has unveiled the design for the expansion of its world headquarters in Oregon. The expansion – with a targeted completion date of 2018 – will add some 3.2 million square feet of office, mixed-use and parking facilities to the site.

The new structures will be linked to preexisting areas by open green spaces, paths, sports courts and fields, and are said to be positioned to allow for future growth. The architecture reportedly takes inspiration from human movement, speed, and the strength and energy of competition. Some of the sustainable aspects of the project include natural daylighting, passive chilled beams (a radiant convection system designed to heat or cool large buildings) and a closed-looped grey water treatment centre.
This phase is the latest chapter in the site's development, which began when Nike world headquarters opened in 1990. The buildings were extended two years later, and a third wave of construction (completed in 2001) doubled its footprint.
