Steve Jobs Theater unveiled

Apple did not only reveal the long-awaited iPhone X on the Sept. 12 th event but also
“Steve Jobs Theater”, which is the only place in the tech giant’s new campus that we
didn’t get the chance to have a look in before.The impressive building, a 1000-seat
auditorium right at the heart of the new Apple Campus in Cupertino, California, was
designed by the famous British firm Foster + Partners. While largely underground, a
UFO-lookalike roof rests gently on a transparent 22-foot- tall and 135-foot- diameter glass
cylinder. With a weight of 80.7 tons its roof is actually the largest carbon-fiber roof in the
world, at the moment at least. What’s even more impressive is that the massive glass
panels are the only materials that support the roof; yes there is not a single column in the
structure which makes the jaw-dropping building the largest all-glass- supported structure
in the world.The next reveal is expected to finally be the firm’s $5 billion headquarters
campus, Apple Park.
