Pixar names its main studio building after Steve Jobs

11 posts in this topic

Steve Jobs is often associated with Apple, but many often forgot that the visionary played a large role in the creation of Pixar. He financed the work at the studio long before it became profitable, pouring millions of his own money into keeping Pixar afloat because he believed in the work of the employees. After his death last year, some wondered how the animation studio would honor him. In the end credits of Brave, there was a brief but touching tribute to Jobs. Now, the Jobs name has a more permanent home on Pixar?s campus ? above the main entrance to the studio?s main building.

On Twitter, a Pixar employee shared an image taken by a friend, stating that the building had been named ?The Steve Jobs Building.? Peering in through the windows, you can clearly see the outline of Sulley, confirming that this is the main building that Steve Jobs himself played a major role in designing. He came up with the idea that the building should be centered around a large atrium, which would lead to accidental collaboration that may not occur if everyone was stuck in their individual offices.

I find this to be the perfect way to honor the legacy of Steve Jobs. Placing his name above the main building not only reminds those who walk through the entrance of his importance to the formation of the studio, but is also a meaningful representation of his influence on the famed building.

The building should "be different". When you press the floor number in the elevator, its the building that moves and not the elevator...

But the glass isn't shattered, nor does it have rounded corners.
