creativity and collaboration, the develop- ment is “transforming miles of asphalt sprawl into a haven of green space in the heart of the Santa Clara Valley,” said Apple. The campus’ ring-shaped, 2.8 million- square-foot main building is clad entirely in what are thought to be the world’s largest panels of curved glass. The Steve Jobs Theater, situated at one of


the highest points within Apple Park, includes a 1,000-seat auditorium and a 20- foot-tall glass cylindrical entrance, 165 feet in diameter, supporting a metallic carbon- fibre roof. The park will also include a visi- tors centre, 100,000-square-foot employee
