Apple Park (Apple Campus 2) Megabuild
Level 9 : Apprentice Miner
-It's terrain-accurate. Using topographical maps along with the actual landscaping construction plans, this will be accurate to the terrain in Cupertino. This is most evident on the sidewalks bordering the property, which vary in height by 11 blocks (meters).
-This is built entirely by hand, solo and without mods.
-As of March 25th, I've put 361 hours of work into the project.
-The main building is 469 blocks across.
-It's an exact replica. Every hill, path, and orchard are true to the construction plans, down the the position of each individual cherry tree.
-This campus is absolutely MASSIVE (and easy to get lost in sometimes).
-A megabuild is any Minecraft build utilizing at least one million blocks (people kept asking).
It's the voxel equivalent of fine pixel art, on a scale I don't believe has ever been done solo before. To put it into perspective, the surface area of the campus (excluding phase 2) is 153 acres, or 620,000 square meters (a block in Minecraft is 1 cubic meter). If you examine the campus from above and assume each 1m^3 block is one pixel, you'd have an image with more pixels than a 720p display. Once you factor in the third dimension, which allows for trees, hills, and buildings, the total number of voxels I'm working with easily surpasses the million mark.
Note: I will make this map available for download as soon as I can figure out how to transfer the Xbox One map file to my Mac, from which I'll upload it here. Thanks for any help!

Most importantly, I updated the photos to give you a closer look at the atriums, cafeteria, interior park cafes, bus stop, and the fountain. Dig in!
