APPLE'S LATE CO-FOUNDER Steve Jobs sadly didn't live to see his vision of "the best office building in the world" come to fruition, but it is now being built in Cupertino, California, and a drone video has surfaced that reveals it under construction.

Called "Campus 2" to distinguish it from Apple's existing headquarters complex at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, Jobs' huge 'spaceship' office building is being set down into the tan dirt of a 148+ acre (60 hectare) construction site. When the huge office building is completed in 2016 it reportedly will accommodate 12,000 Apple employees.

The design is basically that of a four-storey circular doughnut shape that is nestled into a landscaped office park, with infrastructure support and parking spaces arrayed around and beneath it, and apparently much of that will be underground.

The next Apple headquarters building has been designed by the British architectural firm Foster + Partners.

The footage below was shot from a DJI Phantom 2 drone using a Gopro Hero3+ Black edition video camera. µ
