Apple's Mothership HQ: Before And After Greenspace
Just how much additional green would the city of Cupertino add by allowing Steve Jobs to build his dream HQ for Apple? Judging by these photos, the results would be rather spectacular.
Jobs presented the plans to the Cupertino City Council saying that the new circular building would hold 12,000 employees and embrace a number of environmentally-friendly features. To increase the amount of open space on the 150-acre campus, many structures would be built underground – including parking garages. The Apple CEO said trees would be doubled from the current number – with most being apricots as a way to honor the many orchards that once dominated the landscape.
