In June 2011, Steve Jobs presented Apple Campus 2 to the City Council in Cupertino, CA. Due to Apple's high profile and the scale and iconic nature of Foster + Partners' design, the online reaction to the circular new headquarters was immediate and strong. While Apple has been constructing retail stores throughout the world for over a decade and has pioneered innovative building technologies, discussion, even among architects, has typically focused on the company's famed product design. With one of the largest American office projects in history underway in Cupertino, CLOG : APPLE introduces the first comprehensive discussion of Apple's architecture.
CLOG : APPLE showcases over 50 international contributors, including architects, designers, cartoonists, comedians, engineers and other industry leaders. Highlights include an examination of Steve Jobs's Eichler-designed childhood home; the evolution of Apple's store designs; its leading role in innovative glass engineering; the symbolism and urban implications of the new Cupertino headquarters design; reactions to Apple Campus 2 by notable architects and critics; and an interview with one of Apple Computer's original three founders, Ronald Wayne.
