How Jony Ive Masterminded Apple’s New Headquarters ➝

If you’ve been searching for a way to bypass the Wall Street Journal’s paywall to read Christina Passariello’s recent piece on Apple Park and Jony Ive, the full article is available on Apple News. Of course, that means you’ll have to read it on an iOS device, since Apple hasn’t released a News app for macOS yet.

Update: Nick Heer found another way to bypass the paywall — the full article is displayed when visiting the page from this t.co link.

Apple’s New Campus Opens to Employees in April ➝

The new campus will be called Apple Park — a possible reference to Xerox PARC, the company that originally developed the modern graphical user interface that inspired the original Macintosh. It’s a great name, far better than any of the alternative suggestions I’ve seen in my Twitter timeline this morning.

And regarding the theater, that has been built alongside this new campus, from Apple’s press release:

Steve would have turned 62 this Friday, February 24. To honor his memory and his enduring influence on Apple and the world, the theater at Apple Park will be named the Steve Jobs Theater. Opening later this year, the entrance to the 1,000-seat auditorium is a 20-foot-tall glass cylinder, 165 feet in diameter, supporting a metallic carbon-fiber roof. The Steve Jobs Theater is situated atop a hill — one of the highest points within Apple Park — overlooking meadows and the main building.

Apple Park will also include a visitor center with an Apple Store and cafe that will be open to the public.
