Apple has updated plans for its next-generation campus -- dubbed the Apple Campus 2, or commonly known as the 'Spaceship' -- earlier this week. Included in the new plans are 650,000 sq. ft. of solar panels and a massive increase in the amount of green space and plant-life across the new campus.

From the aerial view, it is clear that most of the new campus will be powered by solar panels and renewable energy soruces. The main campus building -- the donut-like shape -- in the middle of the image -- will house around 14,200 Apple employees in one location. Other buildings include R&D labs, a corporate auditorium and parking buildings.
From a 45-degree angle looking south, the campus will be home to tens of thousands of new trees and green spaces, allowing employees to roam around the 170-acre site at will. However, it will be closed to the public and have a secured perimeter.
