Steve Jobs Wants to Build Apple Spaceship Office

Steve Jobs has been busy lately. Many saw him at the WWDC to show off Lion, iOS 5 and iCloud, but the very next day he had a private audience at the Cupertino City Council regarding Apple's plans to change and develop the land that the company owns.

Apple now owns an enormous chunk of land in Cupertino, thanks in large part to a purchase of real estate from a moving-out Hewlett Packard. The area there right now is mostly industrial, concrete and asphalt. Apple is seeking to completely change the landscape of that area, filling the current parking lots with grass and trees.

Steve Jobs presented to the council plans for an office building that is completely circular in shape. Job himself characterized the building concept as looking a bit like a spaceship.

The building will be quite expensive to make due to its lack of flat surfaces. The outside windows will require large sheets of curved glass, which aren't even common at Apple Stores.

Watch the video below to see Steve Jobs work his showmanship to the city, many of whom are visibly big fans of Apple's residence at Cupertino.

    One Ring to rule them all,
    One Ring to find them,
    One Ring to bring them all
