Quolnok, another active member and sysop at the Infosphere, took the task of creating a floor plan of the Planet Express headquarters, based on the map provided in the game.

Interestingly, much of the design in the game of the Planet Express headquarters seems to comply with the more stable canon of Futurama.  Since, the building, much like the ship, changes shape whenever it feels like it.

I took the task of converting his image into SVG, for all your scalable needs:



As you would undoubtedly expect, there are inconsistencies with several episodes, for instance, the door in the employee lounge opposite to the conference room is missing from the map.  And so is the tower.  Though, we'll assume it is simply not there because the game did provide access.

This map is also missing the locker room, though it does claim to have lockers, but in the show the locker room is shown quite often, and certainly to be a room of its own.

Wherever the accusing parlour is beyond me, but I guess it is there somewhere.

I don't remember ever seeing anything that would indicate the locker room is it's own room. I always thought it was just off to the side of the hangar. Unless you're talking about the locker room with the showers in it though that never showed up till the movies.

I watched Leela's Homeworld today and there is a seperate locker room in that episode at least.  Leela is sitting on a bench in the locker room when Fry walks in on her.  The camera jumps back and forth a couple of times and you see all four walls.

Fry also refers to it as a room.
"Is it this room? It's probably the room"

I have no problem with smart buildings in the 31st century that alter their internal geometry to accommodate their occupants' needs. Plenty of sci-fi novels have similar concepts.

The lockers are sometimes in their own room and sometimes they're not, the end.

Plus, we know they have holoshed technology and wormholes, so there's really no reason why rooms couldnt suddenly change their appearances or why doorways couldn't lead to different places at different times.

Quantum Architecture?

Hmm.. they were in the locker room at one point in A Leela of Her Own;  wasn't that the one with the showers?    Or not.

They could use those floor plans for the PE building and make a Futurama museum.

With all T.V. shows the living environment is somewhat of an "amorphous solid" with a solid but changing shape. Casual viewers would have no idea that a minor architectural change occurred and it gives people like us something to talk about. The Simpson's closet/basement door has been in many different places and has had many different forms.

It is mostly animated series that have the changing layout, mostly due to games and liveaction shows needing either solid coding or a physical location. In the case of the lockers, they definately where in that location for BBS and I think possibly Less than Hero, but it is fairly unstable otherwise.

Another weird thing about the planet express building is that sometimes the window in the employee lounge sometimes looks towards the sea and sometimes looks towards the city.

When does it look towards the Hudson River?  I have always felt that that window looking towards the city was fairly consistent.

I thought it always overlooked the river. It's on that side of the building considering it's location relative to the hangar.

I don't know, but the skyline does change:

From Bender Should not be on TV:


From Crimes of the Hot:


From Bender's Big Score:


Plus, remember, when Fry is looking at the restaurant across the street:


I don't think it ever looks towards the river. The weirdest thing about it is that the window does technically look towards the river. You could argue that the Crimes of the Hot grab has the sense of looking towards the city on the other side of the river, since it is further away than the others, but the BBS one looks too close.

Or it is some kind of special window, with a view of either over the river or the city.

Easier solution; the city moves around the building.

He may have gotten the point.  To go back to nny for a moment, it could also be the city is constantly changing around the PE bldg--yesterday's building demolished and replaced with a new building overnite.  Or buildings that change the exterior facade like ny buildings that change their exterior lighting today.  The same could be said for the channel of the Hudson River.  The Corps of Engineers already does this albeit over a slightly longer period of time.

I never thought bout' the layout. Like most other cartoon/animated shows, things change often with no given reason. though the 2 models at the top of this page are great.

Did we ever figure out where the accusing parlor was? And what about that pit of maneating anteaters in AOI1 - or is that strictly non consequential because it is derived from a fantasy sequence and thus something in the fantasy could have triggered the Professor to install the pit, since we never see it in the series again I don't think?

Also, fantastic work on the building futurama_freak1 smile

In the episode "Problem With Popplers", the dining room table changes from round to square after the commercial.  Also, after the commercial, only Fry and Leela are in the room where all the characters had just been before the commercial.

Leela says something like, "Fry, you should throw out these Popplers out.  They're getting old and scaly".

Before the commercial, the professor and Hermes were sitting at that ROUND table.  After the commercial, they're gone and the table is square.

Listen, this is going to be one hell of a bowel movement.

The table shape seems to be a goof, but the Professor and Hermes could of easily moved, since we don't know exactly how much time has passed during the break.

I always assumed that it had no actual permanent plan, and it changed whenever the writers felt like it, similar to the interior of the Planet Express Ship (the writers recently jossed any attempts to make sense of all the ship's rooms and layout)

Besides things change size in the same episode.  In Mobius Dick, the whale constantly changes sizes.  When Amy is harpooning it, it dwarfs the ship length and heightwise, but when Leela attempts to stab it with her knife, its not that much taller then she is.   Also the whale's fins seem to constantly move up and down its body (again when Amy is trying to harpoon it, the fins are near its tail, but when Leela attacks it, the fins are right by its mouth)
