Drone Update From New Apple Campus Shows Auditorium Roof in Place

Quote:
Videographer Duncan Sinfield has been providing monthly updates capturing the facility's construction with his drone. The largest curved glass panels in the world have arrived and are now appearing on the main Foster + Partners-designed structure while the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems on the roof are being covered with large plates. An arrangement of solar photovoltaic panels will serve as the final skin for the rooftop.

Although it is a circle, it might soon be the longest office building in the world. So far the administration building of Volkswagen in Hanover, Germany is the longest I know. It is about 1270 metres long and five floors tall. Volkswagen has at least two more office buildings exceeding one kilometre in Germany.



Here you can see how it compares to Apple Campus 2:



You see that Apple Campus 2 is much "thicker" than the Volkswagen one though. I wonder if there are even longer office buildings somewhere in the world.

Technically you could argue that the circumference of the Volkswagen building is more than 2500 metres, as it has two sides.

I did some googling and there seems to be no really raliable list of longest buildings in the world so far. That could be a good task for us at Skyscrapercity: We could make a competition who will find the longest building on Google Earth. I am pretty sure that there must be some very long buildings in China.

The rules of how to measure length can be quite challenging though. What about Zigzag Buildings for example? Or what about the pentagon where you can walk almost five kilometres on the same floor without crossing your own path?

If Apple ever needs to expand on this building they'll have to attach dongle buildings.
