I have to admit that even though I’m not the hugest fan of Apple and mostly because of Steve Jobs but I have to admit he is a visionary.
His plans for the new Apple campus is really his legacy.
It’s really sad to slowly go. He IS Apple.
An Apple Flying Saucer
Jobs’ vision of a new complex looks like a doughnut spaceship. He wants to put 12,000 people in this building. Jobs wants to put most of the parking underground and replant the former Apricot orchard. The current plot of land is only 20% landscaping. The rest of the lot is either buildings and huge parking lots. Apple wants to to transform space so that it’s 80% landscaping. Apple is also going to build their own power plant, possibly fueled by natural gas or something green. The municipal power grid will only be used as a backup.
Pretty neat if you ask me. Very Apple.
