See the construction of Apple’s new headquarters from the sky

Two years before Apple’s new spaceship-like campus lands, the 2.8-million-square-foot site in Cupertino, California, is still mostly a big pile of dirt. But that dirt pile is getting shapelier by the day, as the foundation is laid and preparations begin for constructing the building proper.

Since February, a local traffic reporter has been documenting the progress from the vantage point of his helicopter. His aerial photos give a taste of what’s to come as Apple gives shape to its retrofuturist dreams.

For some (speculative) context, there’s also a new 3-D flyover rendering of the Apple campus, made by an unaffiliated company, Technology Integration Services, based on publicly available designs.
