Appleâ€™s upcoming futuristic spaceship-like campus is allegedly going to be ready in 2016, and now we have fresh information coming from Norman Foster, the founder of Architecture firm Foster + Partners which is heading the project. The architect has recently spoken to the Architectural Record publication about the upcoming project and divulged more details. According to him, Appleâ€™s new facility is expected to have four stories and a whopping surface of 2.8 million square feet.
Foster says that there will be far more open space for plants and trees; as the headquarters will be 80 percent landscape with more than 7,000 trees. Roads will apparently get replaced with running tracks and glass walls will slide open. Cars will also be â€˜banished and buriedâ€™ in an underground car park, tarmac will be replaced with greenery and more than 1,000 bikes will be available for staff make their way around the campus.
There wonâ€™t be just a single spaceship building, as Apple will construct a corporate fitness center, an auditorium, a central plant, and several others offices, as well. There will be a wellness center that will accommodate the needs of the entire Apple community in Silicon Valley, according to Foster.
