Apple’s second Campus dubbed, ‘Spaceship’ is progressing at an impressive pace as constructions teams try to complete this mammoth project on time. Campus 2 is set to feature a massive ring-shaped building which measures 2.8 million square feet and includes parking areas. Additionally, there will be a 100,000 square foot fitness center, 120,000 square foot auditorium, and dedicated visitor’s area which contains a cafe, Apple Store and observation deck.
Recently, a drone pilot named Duncan Sinfield recorded overhead footage showing the construction process in pin-sharp 4K video. This provides a fascinating insight into a project of this scale and how each small area is slowly coming together. Although, there are concerns regarding privacy and the pilot’s ability to record footage without any restrictions. I highly doubt Apple gave their consent for this footage to be recorded.
On the other hand, perhaps their security measures should be improved to combat drones given the advanced technology at the heart of this venture. Clearly, the Campus 2 emphasizes Apple’s prosperity and design philosophy. I’m fascinated to see how the project will develop and what the final campus will look like.
It seems Apple’s financial success isn’t slowing down any time soon, and who knows how many of these campuses could exist in 10-20 years time.
