Google has released the plans for what the company hopes will be its new headquarters in Mountain View, California. You can see renderings in this gallery, and in Google's video above.

The company plans to redevelop four of its office space sites, designing and constructing the office buildings from scratch. It's the first time the company won't be taking over other buildings it had simply bought and moved into.

Google submitted the plans to the Mountain View City Council. The company's plans are to build light, modular structures that can be moved around as needed.

"The idea is simple," wrote David Radcliffe, Google's vice president of real estate, in a blog post. "Instead of constructing immoveable concrete buildings, we'll create lightweight block-like structures which can be moved around easily as we invest in new product areas. Our self-driving car team, for example, has very different needs when it comes to office space from our Search engineers."
