Get a Sneak Peek of Apple's Proposed 'Spaceship' Headquarters in Calif.

"Not a straight piece of glass in this building."

Apple CEO Steve Jobs gave a presentation to the Cupertino City Council yesterday about his company's new proposed headquarters. And would you believe that he described it as a "spaceship?" He did. And the pictures show he's not that far off.

It looks like "a spaceship just landed there," Jobs told the council, according to Business Insider.

BI has some details of the building, which Jobs said will hold 12,000 people and is circular with "not a straight piece of glass:"

  • The campus would use its own natural gas generator as its primary source of power and the city's power grid only as a backup. Weird.
  • The building includes an auditorium for conferences, and Jobs suggests that's where Apple could hold its big events instead of renting out space in San Francisco.
  • Apple wants to break ground next year, and move in in 2015.

The outlet also put together a slideshow of Job's presentation that shows what the sprawling facility will look like:

Below is the video of Jobs's pitch to the city council (the slideshow starts around the five minute mark):

NBCBayArea.com has a transcript of Jobs's opening remarks.
