Steve Jobs pitched his vision of a new, futuristic, Apple campus to Cupertino City Council on Tuesday, and we gotta say: It looks incredibly cool.
Check out the video above, which is his entire pitch! Feel free to skip around to see the renderings, but it is pretty cool to see how they go about getting one of these built — and Steve Jobs is a pretty charming guy.
Here's how he describes the building for those who don't wanna watch:
"It's a little like a spaceship landed. It's got this gorgeous courtyard in the middle… It's a circle. It's curved all the way around. If you build things, this is not the cheapest way to build something. There is not a straight piece of glass in this building. It's all curved. We've used our experience making retail buildings all over the world now, and we know how to make the biggest pieces of glass in the world for architectural use. And, we want to make the glass specifically for this building here. We can make it curve all the way around the building…"
Apple's plan will increase the site's office space from 2.6 million square feet to 3.1 million square feet, but the company will significantly improve the grounds around the offices, too, Jobs said.
The current HP campus features 20 percent landscaping. "It's pretty bad," admitted Jobs. The redesigned campus, however, will feature 80 percent landscaping, with twice the amount of indigenous trees. Most of the parking space will be relocated undergroun
That's quite the improvement as far as going green is concerned! Jumping from 20% to 80% is quite the leap.
We can definitely see how this would be a great addition to the city, and we have no real doubt that they'll be approved.
Good luck Steve, we'll be expecting a personal tour in 2015!
