AFP: Apple this week announced that workers will start boarding its futuristic new “spaceship” campus in Silicon Valley in April, fulfilling a vision set out by late founder Steve Jobs.
The process of moving more than 12,000 people to a new campus that Jobs envisioned as a “center for creativity and collaboration” was expected to continue late into the year.
A theater on the new Apple Park campus was named in honor of Jobs, who would have turned 62 on February 24.
“Steve’s vision for Apple stretched far beyond his time with us,” Chief Executive Tim Cook said in a release.
“He intended Apple Park to be the home of innovation for generations to come.”
The 175-acre campus with a ring-shaped main building clad in giant panels of curved glass blends workspaces and parkland, and is powered entirely by renewable energy, according to Cook.
Campus features include a fitness center, foot paths, research labs, a visitors center, and an orchard.
