Since last November, drones have been periodically circling Apple Campus 2 in Cupertino, CA, documenting its gradual construction. Footage of the facility -- which is called the “Spaceship,” due to its immense size and circular design -- can be pretty awe-inspiring.
Uploaded to YouTube today is a 4K video shot by Matthew Roberts, which shows Apple’s HQ in its latest phase of construction. The aerial view captures the hulking scale of the facility, which boasts a parking garage that can hold 11,000 cars, and a new auditorium meant for product reveals, not to mention 176 acres of land for Apple to do whatever it pleases.
The whole thing looks more like a futuristic civilization than a corporate HQ. Also note all the solar panels on the main building -- it’s basically covered in them from end to end.
