According to the institute itself, this award goes to projects that “could have been absolutely mediocre, but thanks to the vision and skills of the engineers, they turned out to be something extraordinary.”
The pavilion is located on a small hill in a huge campus Apple. it was named after co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs, who created iPhone.
The tech giant spared no expense in its creation. For example, the pavilion has luxury Italian leather seating, each costing $ 14,000.
The part of the pavilion, which is located above the ground, is made in the form of a cylinder with glass walls and absolutely no columns. But the structure has the world's largest carbon fiber roof, which weighs a lot. There are two 13-meter elevators that lead down to the auditorium.
The elevator rotates 171 degrees as it descends and ascends so that passengers enter and exit the same door, even if they enter and exit in different directions. The elevator is made of chemically tempered glass and is considered the tallest free-standing elevator in the world.
In the theater Apple he holds presentations of his new devices and other events for the press. The first event that was held there was in September 2017, when iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, Apple Watch Series 3 and Apple TV 4K.
