Apple has just submitted revised plans, as well as a gorgeous new render (pictured below, click to expand) for their remarkable “Mothership” campus, reports iPhoneinCanada, originally presented to Cupertino’s City Council by Steve Jobs on June 7th of this year.
The massive new campus will be able to house 13,000 employees, and features around 2.8 million square feet of usable space. Steve Job described the building as follows:
It’s a pretty amazing building. It’s a little like a spaceship landed. It’s got this gorgeous courtyard in the middle… It’s a circle. It’s curved all the way around. If you build things, this is not the cheapest way to build something. There is not a straight piece of glass in this building. It’s all curved. We’ve used our experience making retail buildings all over the world now, and we know how to make the biggest pieces of glass in the world for architectural use. And, we want to make the glass specifically for this building here. We can make it curve all the way around the building… It’s pretty cool.
The revised plans include a new render for the building, showing just how massive it really is, although the other included renders appear to be the same as those previously provided. The new documents were updated to include detailed floor plans for the 4-story building, which is on track to be complete by 2015.
Apple’s new mothership campus will be the world’s largest office building when complete, and will be larger even than the U.S. Pentagon!
