Stunning sunset drone video of Apple Park

As the main “spaceship” structure at Apple Park nears completion, the drone footage from pilot/cinematographer Duncan Sinfield just keeps getting better. Last Friday, he published a new video on YouTube showing the amazing structure near sunset

Wired had a writeup on the entire campus and the iconic “spaceship” headquarters building last week as well. One of the key points of that article by Steven Levy was about the incredible detail brought to play in the design and building of the project. A good deal of that detail owes its roots to none other than Steve Jobs. Foster+Partner is the architectural firm tasked with designing Apple Park, and one of its project leads (Stefan Behling) was quoted by Wired:

They describe the level of attention devoted to every detail, the willingness to search the earth for the right materials, and the obstacles overcome to achieve perfection […]

At one point, Behling recalls, Jobs discussed the walls he had in mind for the offices: “He knew exactly what timber he wanted, but not just ‘I like oak’ or ‘I like maple.’ He knew it had to be quarter-­cut. It had to be cut in the winter, ideally in January, to have the least amount of sap and sugar content. We were all sitting there, architects with gray hair, going, ‘Holy shit!’
