Recently reported in El Economista, Apple has chosen to team up with Norman Foster for its new Apple Campus in Cupertino, California. Steve Jobs and Norman Foster have been working together for months developing the design for the new campus. The future headquarters will seek to utilize Foster’s innovative vision for sustainability, ability to perfect a building for its users down to the finest detail, and ideas to maximize efficiency in the workplace.
Sustainability, is reported to be a large focus of the new campus. A network of submerged transportation tunnels is in the works and the campus will incorporate some of the Foster’s innovations already implemented in Masdar City, designed by Foster + Partners. Masdar City is considered the first city in the world without cars or carbon emissions (capacity 50,000). The R & D buildings will be multifunctional and will incorporate cutting-edge technology in materials and equipment as well as renewable energy resources.
Apple and architects Bohlin Cywinski Jackson had previously teamed up to design Apple Stores worldwide. In August we featured the London Apple Store and in July we featured the Apple Store in Shanghai, China both designed Bohlin Cywinski Jackson.
In true Apple fashion, everything is hush hush, and it is all about the reveal. We will look forward to seeing the result of the collaboration between Jobs and Foster. Stay tuned to ArchDaily for the latest developments.
