Apple City to be designed by architect Norman Foster

New Apple HQ to be designed by Norman Foster

Famed British architect Norman Foster has reportedly been appointed by Apple to design its new headquarters in Cupertino, dubbed Apple City.

Having worked on the visually impressive City Hall and Millennium Bridge in London and the mind-bendingly expansive Millau Viaduct in France, Foster is reported by Spanish newspaper El Economista to now be tasked with the development of the new Apple HQ that will occupy an additional 98 acres of land recently brought at the company’s current Cupertino base.

In true Apple form Foster’s involvement in the project has yet to be officially confirmed and is just one of a number of rumours surrounding the HQ expansion. It is believed that the mooted Apple City will feature two campuses interconnected by a series of underground tunnel systems.

Whilst this sounds like the vision of a Bond villain lair filled with Jobsian employees prowling brightly lit underground corridors in a black turtleneck uniform, Apple is reportedly set to combine its design philosophy with a series of green credentials. Environmentally friendly, renewable and recycled materials are expected to be the prime construction components for Apple City with renewable energy and a nonexistent carbon footprint also on Apple’s list of requirements.
