New drone footage of Apple's huge headquarters spanning 2.8 million sq ft
A closer look at the spaceship campus
A fantastic new video was recently posted to YouTube, showing stunning aerial images of Apple's new campus in Cupertino, California. The video was shot using a DJI Phantom 2 drone, equipped with a GoPro Hero 3+ camera. The footage reveals the scale of the 2.8 million square foot facility, which is truly massive. The aerial perspective shows the surrounding houses of the Infinite Loop address dwarfed in comparison to the mammoth disc-like structure.
The new headquarters for the tech giant have been designed by multi-award winning British architect Sir Norman Foster. Integrated designed features of the steel and glass structure include an underground tunnel to an in-house auditorium and advanced anti-earthquake measures. The plans aim for a carbon neutral, self-sustaining building that will be powered by renewable energy sources and will also feature its own functioning farm, which will provide food for staff. The doors are said to be opening sometime in 2016. Stay tuned for more details of the developments at Infinite Loop...
