Steve Jobs Pitches Futuristic New Apple Campus
Apple's head honcho takes the future thinking that drives the company's innovation and applies it to their office design.
Earlier this week, Steve Jobs explained Apple’s plans for the 98-acre space recently purchased from Hewlett-Packard by the Cupertino City Council in California. A new 4-story building, shaped like a huge donut and large enough to house 12,000 employees, would be completed by 2015.
Jobs plans to improve the grounds around the futuristc-looking campus by transforming the current 20% landscaping into 80%, with twice the amount of indigenous trees and mostly underground parking.
The campus would use its own on-site energy facility, generating power with natural gas and other clean methods, and using the Cupertino electricity grid only as a backup. You can watch Steve Jobs’ 21-minute presentation to the Cupertino City Council in the video below:
