A huge-scale building that resembles a spaceship. It was another vision of Steve Jobs. The building is taking shape in the US city of Cupertino, and when completed, it is expected to host approximately 13,000 employees and it will be an ecological building self-sufficient thanks to solar panels.

What is more, the parking will be underground to make room for a huge parkland with thousands of trees, the use of air conditioning will be unnecessary almost all year round thanks to an original ventilation system.

Construction innovations are expected to be seen in the near future.
