Steve Jobs is known for his penchant for beautiful architecture, but his plans for a new Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California is are really out of this world.
Described by Jobs himself as looking "a little like a spaceship landed" the building design is a huge cicular ring with a forrest-like courtyard forming the center. Jobs recently presented the plans before the Cupertino City Council for approval.
It’s a pretty amazing building. It’s a little like a spaceship landed. It’s got this gorgeous courtyard in the middle… It’s a circle. It’s curved all the way around. If you build things, this is not the cheapest way to build something. There is not a straight piece of glass in this building. It’s all curved. We’ve used our experience making retail buildings all over the world now, and we know how to make the biggest pieces of glass in the world for architectural use. And, we want to make the glass specifically for this building here. We can make it curve all the way around the building… It’s pretty cool.
In true Jobsian style, the famous orator said Apple was attempting to build "the best office building in the world." Where will they put the "reality distortion field?"
