The LEGO Version of The Apple Spaceship Campus Looks Stunning

It has been made using 85,000 LEGO bricks, and has a scale of 1:650. But it isn’t heading to your nearest LEGO store anytime soon.

This year, lifesize LEGO builds have been on a roll. After the driveable LEGO Bugatti Chiron supercar, we now have a LEGO version of Apple’s massive Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California. Designer Spencer R has shared his creation on photo sharing platform Flickr. The craftsman used as many as 85,000 LEGO pieces to make this, and it took 2 years of effort. Spencer’s creation has a scale of 1:650 and weighs 77.5 pounds (around 35kg). The overall footprint of the LEGO Apple Park is a massive 6.8 feet x 4.5 feet.

And it is not just the massive spaceship building that Spencer has recreated. He has taken the pains to details the Steve Jobs Theater, the hundred-year-old Glendenning Barn, the garages where employees park their cars, the visitor center as well as the landscaping in the minutest of detail.

Apple Park LEGO-2

The Apple Park is also known as the Spaceship. The enormous building is nearly a mile in circumference, holding within it around 2.8 million square feet of office space. As many as 12,000 Apple employees work there. Surrounding the building is a sculpted landscape, featuring rolling hills, trees, and grasslands. As much as 80% of the space has a green cover and that includes 9,000 trees.The Apple Park campus design was led by famed architect Norman Foster, and is believed to have cost around $5 billion.

This is not the first time that Spencer has weaved his magic with LEGO bricks. In 2009, he created a replica of New York’s Rockefeller Center and in 2012, made a LEGO version of the Eiffel Tower.

The LEGO version of the Apple Park is a one-off at the moment, and you cannot buy one. Unless LEGO decided to put this into production, albeit in smaller scale sizes. We hope they do though.
