Yes, the Apple Campus 2 is supposed to look like a spaceship. There’s going to be an R&D facility, a fitness center, and an auditorium. When it’s complete, it will be one of the largest office buildings in the world.
It’s also supposed to be powered by 100 percent renewable energy. According to Apple, the campus will recycle or reuse more than 95 percent of the material from demolished buildings at the construction buildings, such as concrete, glass, and metal.
Right now the roof already has solar panels. Matthew Roberts, who posted the drone video, estimates that the installations are 65 percent complete.
The building will also have natural ventilation, as air flows freely between the inside and outside of the building.
Workers are also working on landscaping. The landscaping over the new tunnel at the campus is nearly complete, and the workers have started planting trees around the building.
The footage was taken after rainfall in Cupertino, which led to an accumulation of water at the construction site. Here’s some drone footage from December.
