Resource CNET reports - the authorities of the city of Cupertino, California, approved the project of the futuristic building "Spaceship". And literally the next day after Apple held a presentation in its "home" city and put the project up for public discussion.
Now there are practically only formalities left - to get official approval by voting in the city council on October 15 and win the final consideration of the application on the 19th. And then you can start building the new headquarters, which will open in 2016.
Like all other Apple presentations, this one was done using a well-cut video. The presentation was moderated by Dan Whisenhunt, director of real estate and utilities, and the video itself contained moments from the speeches of the architect Norman Foster and other personalities responsible for the project. The "O" -shaped structure of the building will remain, although the building itself will be slightly modified compared to the sketches that were shown earlier. The design development process for the building was really intense and in many ways the authors of the project were inspired by the building of Stanford University. The photo below (click-to-zoom) compares the Spaceship to existing buildings around the world.
The idea of such a look for Apple's headquarters belongs to Steve Jobs himself., who described her in his public speech 4 months before his death, in June 2011. Later, in December, the company's managers presented to the public a revised project, which required an increase in the construction time by a year and the budget - by $ 2 billion over the planned one. These costs are due to the specific requests of the company's management and technical difficulties during the construction of the building. It is not easy to create a continuous curved glass wall 6 km long, nor is it easy to fabricate polished concrete structures in advance rather than machining them on site.
Therefore, at the end of April 2013, an updated project was presented, supplemented by numerous documentation. It described in detail the stages of construction, the economic impact that it will have on the city, data on job creation, tax deductions, and more. Including what exactly the appearance of such a non-standard and grandiose structure will bring to the public life of Cupertino.

When Steve Jobs presented Apple's new campus to the Cupertino City Council in 2011, his goal was solely to build the world's best office building. Almost five years later, construction of the new headquarters continues, and looking at it, we can confidently say that Jobs's dream is coming true
