The Ford World Headquarters building in Dearborn, Michigan is an iconic building, but one that is set to undergo a renaissance to put it in the same bracket as other modernized, forward-looking office campuses.

The new and redesigned World Headquarters facility will continue to maintain the American auto brand's "iconic image" but will make for a far more employee-friendly space thanks to the addition of improved connectivity features, walkways, covered parking areas and outdoor recreation facilities inspired by the kinds of facilities provided by many tech companies to their employees. The designs will pay heed to the WELL Building Standard, which aims to improve employee well-being through features that boost physical, mental and emotional health.

Ultimately, the new Ford World Headquarters building is part of a movement to create office architecture that boosts employee morale, productivity and health.
