Apple Planned New "Spaceship" Headquarters in Cupertino, California
My niece works for Apple. Needless to say, she is super excited about this news from her big boss-Steve Jobs. This type of architectural design reminds me of the Chapel Of Holy Sacrifice in Diliman, Quezon City, Philippines that was built in the mid 1950's. (See photo below).
Here is the press release of the planned "spaceship" headquarters last June.
Apple plans to build a new four-storey building that will hold 12,000 people, close to its current headquarters in Cupertino, California.
On Tuesday, the day after addressing developers at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, Steve Jobs, Apple’s chief executive, presented his company’s plans to the Cupertino City Council.
“Apple has grown like a weed,” Mr Jobs said. “It’s clear that we need to build a new campus. We’re just out of space. That doesn’t mean that we don’t need the one we’ve got - we do need it - but we need another one to augment it.”
Presenting the plans for the circular building with a large open-air courtyard in the middle, Mr Jobs said: “It’s a little like a spaceship landed.”
The new building would be built on a 150-acre site that Apple bought from computer manufacturer HP earlier this year.
Expected completion date: 2015
