Apple’s New Campus mock-ups unveiled
by Mark R
This is a mock-up of Apple’s new campus, and it is under development from big architecture firms Foster + Partners, ARUP North America, and Kier and Wright.
As you can see, it is huge and circular, and it would appear that the center is made to insure that nature is preserved. I admire this decision, as this could have been a solid circle and have more space inside.
As it is, it has space for about 2.8 million square feet, which is good for 13,000 employees. It also has a corporate fitness center, 300,000 square feet research facilities, and a central plant.
If all goes well, you should see this plant sometime by 2015. You’ll probably get to see inside it before or after that date if you are employed by Apple. I will imagine that the iPad 6 and iPhone 8 will be selling quite nicely by then.
In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if Apple will be a world power by that time. I also wouldn’t be surprised if Apple revealed that all their ideas are actually stolen alien technology. At that point, the giant factory becomes a Super Stargate and the aliens reveal themselves. That, or the huge factory takes off and hovers over the city of San Francisco, Independence Day style.
