Renderings Highlight Interior of Apple's Upcoming 'Spaceship' Campus
Around the time of the city's final approval, we pointed to a video posted by the City of Cupertino covering the three-hour October 1 meeting where Apple's Environmental Impact Report was discussed ahead, with the session including a brief overview video by Apple and a presentation led by Apple's Senior Director of Real Estate and Facilities Dan Whisenhunt.
Whisenhunt shared a number of new renderings of the campus as part of his presentation, and late last month Apple Gazette posted a number of low-quality screenshots from the session video showing the renderings. But now Wired has obtained a full set of higher-quality images that offer a much better look at the interior of the campus.
In these images, we see for the first time the space port-like entrance to the development’s subterranean parking lot, a cavernous cafeteria that spills into the grassy landscape beyond, and the glass pavilion that will serve as the entrance to Apple’s new underground auditorium — a secure lair where press will gather for future product launches. In short, these documents give us the most complete picture of Apple’s new home yet, a campus that Steve Jobs himself thought had a shot at being “the best office building in the world.”
The full set of renderings is available at Wired.
