Earlier this week, Apple CEO Steve Jobs announced plans for a spaceship-like new office campus in Cupertino, California that would hold up to 12,000 Apple employees and completely revamp the way the company operates.
Jobs presented the Cupertino City Council with plans for the four-story, eco-friendly offices reportedly designed by world-renowned Norman Foster Architects. The new offices were designed with green technology and renewable energy in mind, and will operate utilizing Apple’s natural gas facility and an electricity grid as back-up. Parking would be conveniently located below the building.
Details of the campus are sketchy at best and the following screen captures from the original presentation are the only known available images of this project.
