Construction at Apple’s “Spaceship” Campus has been progressing at a rapid pace in the past few months, as the company most recently began putting up the outer walls and laying roadwork. Now, iFun.de (Google Translate) shares new photos of the steel and glass material that will be used for the campus’ facade, which are being provided by German company Josef Gartner GmbH.

The images show the steel and glass components being tested by Josef Gartner outside of its premises, and could hint at the scale of Apple’s new Campus 2 building upon completion. The building will have a circular, multi-story structure surrounded by greenery, additional buildings, performance stages, a fountain, and more.
