Apple submits updated plans for new Cupertino campus

As reported by iPhoneincanada, Apple has submitted revised plans for the "mothership" campus they plan on building in Cupertino. The new renderings outline the internal layout and surroundings of the structure, and... They're absolutely gorgeous.

Apple originally sent Steve Jobs to the Cupertino City Council back in June to pitch the idea of building a new space for Apple employees since outgrowing their Palo Alto headquarters. They picked up the lot from HP back in 2010. The new plans detail the inner workings describing a restaurant and dining area, entrances and parking layout and more.

Check out some of the renderings below and let us know what you think in the comments!

Apple wants to build a new campus in Cupertino, Steve Jobs presents the 'Mother Ship' to the City Council [video]

Straight after WWDC, Steve Jobs is the centre of attention again; this time presenting a plan for a new Apple campus to Cupertino City Council. Apple has outgrown its current campus at One Infinite Loop and proposes to build a new futuristic looking building on land it bought recently from Hewlett Packard.

The plans shown off at the meeting make the proposed campus look like a space ship that has just landed. The idea behind the design is quite phenomenal. During the presentation Steve Jobs outlined the plans and told the City Council that the building would house over 12,000 employees, have a huge underground car park, increase the trees in the area by 60% and generate its own electricity; only using the grid as a backup.

“There is not a straight piece of glass in this building, it’s all curved. We 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… It’s pretty cool.”

Apple is planning on starting the project in 2012 with completion scheduled for 2015. Take a look at the video after the break. It is over twenty minutes long and includes a question and answer session at the end. It is well worth watching! Let us know what you think when you have picked your jaw up from the floor!
