Meet the latest from NASA: This is the Jet Propulsion Laboratory Flight Projects Center at 4800 Oak Grove in Pasadena, California, a project designed by Irvine-based architecture firm LPA Inc. According to an older press release from NASA, the building has one of those green, living roofs that are all the rage these days. In terms of what'll actually happen in this building, it sounds like this is where everything is designed. Jet packs, NASA. Jet packs. "The six-story Flight Projects Center will house missions in the busy design and development phases, when engineers and scientists from all around the world must work together closely. The first tenants are expected to move in this September." The building will have its ribbon-cutting next Monday.
