Visiting Apple’s new campus before NVIDIA GTC 2018 kicks off. Enjoy the small gallery of images.

As mentioned in my first article posted today on the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference, we had some time in the morning to go check out Apple’s new campus. The visitor’s center was not open yet so we couldn’t go in (there is good and bad with that…the good being obvious in the photos).

The campus and architecture are stunning. What do you think?

Let’s start at the beginning.

Nothing terribly magical about Apple’s signage design. Just clean lines and black.

Apple Park has a visitor center, as many readers already know. It is open to the public seven days a week, including Sunday from 11 am to 6 pm. Apple says it is a place to learn, explore, shop and more. There is actually a cafe and second-floor roof terrace.

This gives a sense of the epic scale of the main building, shot from a distance. The glass panels are the largest glass panels ever produced for a building and come from German glass manufacturers Seele and Sedak, as previously discussed in this story by Anthony. (see: Architosh, “Apple Announces ‘Apple Park’—Names Theater After Steve Jobs,” 22 Feb 2017)

From a distance the perfectly circular Apple headquarters building, designed by architects Foster & Partners of London.

The glass walls run from floor to ceiling and continuously wrap the building on both exterior and interior sides of the donut-shaped structure.
