Before Steve Jobs passed away one of the projects closest to his heart was the new Apple Campus building, the one that looked like a UFO. One of the last public recordings of Steve Jobs was his meeting with the Cupertino authorities, in order to show them the plans of the building. Now a reliable source leaked some confidential images of Apple’s Campus 2 building.
The building is almost a mile in circumference and you should know that the land used to host this construction was bought from HP and other neighbors in Cupertino, California. The price was around $300 million and you should also know that solar panels cover the main building’s entire roof. The pics also show outdoor and indoor aspects, with rounded glass walls, great transparency and a very clean and futuristic look. The slides name Foster + Partners as one of the architecture firms involved in the project.
Other big names involved are OLIN for landscape architecture, Arup for consulting engineering and Davis Langdon for construction. Apple CFO Peter Oppenheimer sent the neighboring companies brochures requiring feedback and the breaking ground of the new Campus is expected later this year. One of the best things about this mammoth is the auditorium, where Apple will give presentations starting from 2015. Anyone else excited about this new step in Apple’s history?
