Brand-New Pictures Of Apple's Amazing Spaceship Campus

Apple Campus 2

Steve Jobs’s last public appearance was a very different kind of product unveiling: He appeared before the city council of Cupertino, Calif., forever Apple’s hometown, to pitch plans for a gigantic new headquarters building that looked like a UFO planted in a serene forest.

Now the company has submitted new renderings to the city, giving us a closer look at Apple’s new home.

It can only be described as insanely great.

Here it is from above. The roof will have solar panels.

Here's a schematic.

The new building will occupy a campus formerly owned by Hewlett-Packard.

By putting most parking underground or in structures, there's room for 6,000 trees.

The round main building will be surrounded by nature.

A nice place to take a break from tweaking icon pixels.

There are four floors in the main building—but it doesn't seem imposing.

Apple will take what it's learned from building glassy retail stores and apply it to the new building..

All that glass will let in natural light—making the building more efficient and greener.

Paths will line the campus, which has lots of open space.
