Today’s News - Monday, March 18, 2002
We start a new week with a new feature on the home page: Medtronics World Headquarters near Minneapolis designed by HGA. The half-million-square-foot campus has every technology required for a global leader in medical research and development. What sets it apart are the non-technical elements that make it a light-filled complex set in a very well planned - and beautiful - prairie setting.
