Pixar names their building after Steve Jobs
It’s global knowledge that Steve Jobs was instrumental in development of Pixar’s stature, with contributions from his own kitty and the likes. So, it comes as no surprise that the company has named their building after the iconic innovator, who went on to create a brand that soared above many others in the same space. The also paid tribute to Jobs in the end credits of their animated film, Brave. This building holds historical importance to all Jobs fans since it is the same structure that Steve Jobs designed himself, with the help of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson.
Speaking on the building itself Tom Carlisle, Facilities Director at Pixar, said, “He didn’t want a standard office-park building—one with corrugated-metal siding or ribbon windows. The building had to look good 100 years from now. That was his main criterion.”
