Revealed: first images of Fosters-designed Apple HQ

Apple supremo Steve Jobs has unveiled the first images of its new Foster + Partners-designed campus for the technology giant in California

The halo-like building was revealed by Apple’s co-founder and chief executive during a presentation to the Cupertino city council.

The leaked images show a glass ring surrounded by trees.

Neither Foster + Partners nor Apple were willing to comment.

Fosters set to design Apple HQ

Foster + Partners is designing the next phase of Apple’s ‘campus’ headquarters in California, according to reports in the Spanish media

El Economista reported last week that the practice has spent months in dialogue with the software giant over the plans to extend Apple’s ‘Infinite Loop’ home (pictured). 

Located in Cupertino, California, the 14 hectare site has been Apple’s main base for 30 years but it is claimed company bosses think it is now getting cramped.

Any Foster-designed buildings would be built on a 40 hectare plot next to ‘Infinite Loop’ which was purchased from high-tech rival Hewlett Packard recently.

It is rumoured the project will feature subsurface roads beneath landscaped parkland and new ‘multi-functional’ buildings housing Apple’s research and development operations.

Apple and Foster + Partners both declined to comment.
