Some call Apple's mammoth new campus a doughnut, some call it a spaceship—but whatever you call it, it's taking shape in Cupertino. The Verge, one of Curbed's sister sites, published a new video from drone pilot and photographer Duncan Sinfield that shows how the campus began and how it's growing, and the footage is mesmerizing.
Also fascinating are the stats. According to The Verge, the new building will contain: 2.8 million square feet, room for 13,000 employees, a 1,000-square-foot auditorium, and 300,000-square-feet worth of R&D space. The building, designed by Foster + Partners, will generate 100 percent of its own power from renewable sources and is scheduled to open in 2016 or in early 2017. Total building costs are estimated at $5 billion.
