Google has declared the opening of a 40,000 square foot area in Central London known as The Academy in an attempt to inspire and educate people from children to CEOs.
The Academy, situated in Victoria, is going to include various retro Brighton themed auditoriums with styles representing funfairs, beaches and electric cinemas to appeal to the Academy attendees.
This opening hopes to demonstrate Google’s commitment and dedication to building digital talent and interactivity throughout the generations of the public.
