While a lot of the focus surrounding Apple is on the next iPhone, the next iPad, or possibly even the iWatch or iTV, there is one major non-device related project under development: the upcoming Apple Campus 2 building, also known as the new ‘Spaceship’ campus. The new campus building has been in talks for a while and is expected to be partly finished in 2016, when the first construction phase is expected to be completed.

Today, however, a life-sized model of the upcomign campus has been discovered. It was expected that the tech giant would be building models of its upcoming campus building, but we now know that at least one model has been built, and eagle eyed folks at both Reddit and Silicon Valley Business Journal have snapped some pictures of the new model building. BizJournals also pointed out that it has uncovered a proposal submitted by Apple to build a 9,000 square foot demo building to test out the looks of the new building of the campus.

While the images above don’t appear to look too much like a spaceship, the mockup is only one segment of the building, which is expected to eventually curve around into a circle, and look like a spaceship. While ground has broken at the campus site, the site won’t be complete for quite some time.

What do you think of Apple’s upcoming ‘spaceship’ campus? Do you like the proposed design? Sound off in the comments section or tweet me at @TiP_Griffin.

    It reminds me of the GCHQ building in the UK.
