Apple’s upcoming Campus 2 structure, dubbed by the press the iSpaceship, is starting to take shape. As evidenced by a bunch of aerial photos taken last month, a large portion of the site has been demolished, with the rubble cleared out.

A new batch of photos taken from the air and published Thursday depict a spaceship-like imprint of the main building on the ground.

The dirt in the circle is especially interesting as it offers a hint of the perfect Euclidean geometry, in line with Apple’s maniacal attention to detail. Check out the images included after the jump and dare telling me this won’t be the office of the future…

In addition to the circular imprint, construction workers have cleared the area for research and development facilities.

When completed, Campus 2 will become a new home to some 12,000 Apple employees and will complement Apple’s current headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop in Cupertino, California.

Check out the images below, take yesterday and shared by AppleToolbox.

And this is what the site looked like just a month ago.

The 2.8 million square foot ring-shaped structure should come online by mid-2016.

The central structure will include an underground parking lot for about 2,400 cars, a 120,000 square foot auditorium for corporate events, a 100,000 square foot fitness center and more.

The office buildings will be surrounded by a cluster of apple trees and there will be roving footpaths and bike paths, with more than a thousand bikes kept on the site.
