More than half of Apple Campus 2 ‘Spaceship’ loop now topped out

“Five of the nine building segments making up the ‘Spaceship’ Ring in Apple’s Campus 2 mega-project have reached their ceiling just six months after the initial dining hall structure reached its fifth floor back in March,” Daniel Eran Dilger reports for AppleInsider.

“Below, an aerial video shows the current state of Apple’s Campus 2 Spaceship Ring, compared to the excavated site one year ago and the initial segment completed six months ago,” Dilger reports.

“Rapid progress on the iconic Campus 2 complex has come via an innovative structural design that stacks interlocking concrete void slabs, which ‘serve as both the ceiling of one floor and support for the raised surface of the floor above,” Apple has stated,’ Dilger reports. “The Ring’s nine building segments of four floors are joined by open hallways that radiate from the center circle…”

  1. i saw one part of the wall last week and it’s massive! But last night I drove by with a friend and it was covered by a mountain of dirt. When the spaceship is completed it will be an architectural masterpiece. 👽

    1. Think of lasagna when complete,
      Layer of lasagna noodles (slab)
      then add layer of cheese (raised surface under which the wires and the tubes go)
      then layer of fluffy spinach (the air splace for people and computers)
      Then another layer of lasagna noodles (subfloor of next cheese layer)

      Repeat as necessary

      According to what i saw over time, they stacked up all the subfloors raw and go back to install the raised surface

      Now as to the interlocking part, that i wanna see too! Especially in an earthquake

  2. The really cool thing is that when “The Big One” finally obliterates California, the spaceship campus will simply levitate and relocate to another place.

    I just hope it’s still in our galaxy.

  3. innovative structural design that stacks interlocking concrete void slabs, which ‘serve as both the ceiling of one floor and support for the raised surface of the floor above,-nothing innovative there, been used worldwide before.

    1. yeah.. I wondered if they were trying to be funny. “And then in order to facilitate easy movement within the structure there will integrally incorporated doorways and hallways.”
