No Wonder McLaren’s Technology Center Caught Apple’s Eye

| Cool Stuff Found

You’ve probably read about the McLaren supercars in car magazines. Or seen them on BBC’s Top Gear. While the cars are amazing, what’s equally amazing is the McLaren Technology Center in Woking, Surrey England which opened in 2004. New Atlas has the story and lots of photos. That reflecting pool warms the building in the winter and cools it in the summer.  We heard rumors that Apple’s car project may have had some talks with McLaren. That building alone is enough to catch anyone’s attention, let alone the car research that goes on inside. It’s perhaps the second coolest building on the planet after Apple’s Campus 2.

    Very nice building. I think it kind of looks like a yin-yang symbol from above. Using the pool of water for heating and cooling is a great idea.

    Speaking of the Apple Campus 2, can we get whoever is flying that drone over the construction site to drive down to Texas and fly it over the Mac Pro factory. At the very least if the parking lot is empty then will we know there is no future Mac Pro.
