Shows brief glimpse of interior design
A newly-leaked video -- strongly believed to have been produced by Apple -- promotes the design of Apple's upcoming Campus 2 building in Cupertino. The clip (below) features interviews with key members of the project, such as architects and arborists, as well as shots of lead Apple designer Jonathan Ive, and archival footage of company co-founder Steve Jobs. Jobs' presentation to the Cupertino city council about the building was one of his last public appearances.
Significantly, the video claims that the building will have no net increase in greenhouse gas emissions, and that Apple is "bringing California back" by making most of the campus green space and sowing plants that are native to the California climate, instead of imported varieties. The video also offers an early glimpse at
Apple's plans for interior workspaces, which have otherwise flown under the radar.
About the source of the video, the leaker, "Unofficially Apple," claims simply that Apple "never got round to uploading [it] onto YouTube." Timing may have been an issue, since at one point Apple was forced to delay Campus 2's completion until 2016.
