Apple Plans New Headquarters Larger Than The Pentagon

Apple’s monolithic new base in California will have its own power grid and looks as though it could take off into space if conditions on Earth grow too dire. Via the Mac Observer:

New architectural information has been released about Apple’s proposed, so-called spaceship headquarters in Cupertino. Apple Campus 2 building include 2.8 million square feet of space in the ring-shaped structure with room for some 13,000 employees. Apple will be building its own power center to provide electricity for the campus and will require little supplemental power from the local grid.

According to the city, Apple will be restoring some of the area’s native vegetation with the assistance of arborists from Stanford University.

  6. Obviously, Jobs feels that he will soon weep for there are no more lands to conquer (Alexander complex), plans to take off in his iSaucer to spread his own brand of overpriced, aspirational tat to the douchebags of the galaxy!

    Isn’t it ironic that Apple has a logo of a bitten apple that symbolizes a bite from the forbidden fruit?  And look where they are now: making more bank than the government.  Just saying.

    It’s good that we’re building this, after all who knows when we may need to hack into an alien mothership.

  22. Interesting that in the 21st century Apple is building a 19th century building for its worker bees. The need for the worker bees to work in a hive went away with the internet. 

    Alternatively, Apple bees could work from home, online and thereby reduce pollution, global warming, reduce traffic congestion and save hundreds of personal hours spent commuting. But somebody’s ego would not be served by a more Eco-friendly approach to bee hives.

    I wonder where the secret life support room is going to be? You know, the one they’re going to use to keep Jobs alive longer than Walt Disney..

    • don’t forget the cryogenics chamber, that they will be placing job’s body in. until they have the technology to revive him, and give him immortality. some one as egotistical as jobs would do something like that. this new “head quarters”  just looks like another attempt to remove one’s self from the rest of the dregs of society, i bet jobs is so isolated now that he’s probably just as insane as Howard Hughes was. eventually his handlers and shareholders will take over and i am sure they’re waiting with baited breath for his demise.

    but if you don’t work in an office you can’t raid the supply room
