Facebook already has 2,000 employees at its headquarters in Menlo Park, Calif.But it’s preparing for a major expansion. Eventually, its current location—the East Campus—will hold 6,600 employees. Another 2,800 will occupy a second site, the West Campus, across the Bayfront Expressway.

Here are some models and drawings which give an idea of Facebook’s new home.
