New Apple Campus (Known as Spaceship)

When Steve Jobs presented his proposal for a new Apple campus back in 2011, he had one aim: to create the best office building in the world.

The project is under construction in Cupertino, California. It is designed by Foster + Partners, with engineering being done by Arup.

It’s a pretty amazing building. It’s a little like a spaceship landed. It’s got this gorgeous courtyard in the middle… Steve Jobs said.

When finished, Apple's second campus will include a 260,100 sqm ring-shaped main building, a 9,290 sqm fitness center with more than 20,000 people capacity, a 11,150 sqm auditorium that will seat 1,000 people, and a dedicated visitor's center with 7,711 sqm of space, all surrounded by lush green landscaping.

The project accommodates more than 10,980 parking spaces as well as one of the largest photovoltaic solar arrays in the world (65,030 sqm of solar panels).

The walls will be composed of the biggest pieces of curved glass in the world (something like six kilometers of glass).

Once the campus is finished, 80% of the site will be green space and there will be 1,000 bikes on site to help get employees around campus. There will be a total of 7,000 trees on campus. Apple will use recycled water for the trees. The campus will be run on 100% renewable energy.

Construction of the campus is scheduled to be completed at the end of 2016.
