The space is home to the Qualcomm MEMS Technology (QMT) display division of Qualcomm. The company developed a nature-inspired display using biomimicry, the study of mimicking nature. The display technology is based on the reflective properties of Morpho butterflies. Design of the main circulation corridors and the collaborative areas was inspired by the division’s logo–a Morpho butterfly, and the butterfly reference was carried out to the display wall at the lobby which is used as an orientation point for visitors and customers. Unique collaborative spaces were designed to encourage interaction between the engineers to help foster the development process and the open exchange of ideas.
