With the end of the Apple Park in mid-june, the popular aerial videos from the new ma campus disappeared but to our happiness they are not over yet. The last of its kind was released last September and showed Ma's campus in activity.
This week, Duncan Sinfield shared the video above on YouTube, which shows the company's gigantic space in Cupertino. Sinfield has an extensive catalog of aerial video from Apple Park that show from the skeleton of the works to the final result.
As you can see, the campus is incredible and the landscaping of the place is practically finished. It is interesting to note that we do not see people moving around during filming, which implies that the video was recorded before the working hours of most employees or on any holiday / weekend.
Incredible (and fascinating) both the size and structure of the place, isn't it?
Steve Jobs Theater awarded
Speaking of structure, the Steve Jobs Theater, located in Apple Park, won the Structural Awards this year in the ?Structural Art? category, as disclosed by the Institution of Structural Engineers, which brings together structural engineers from the United Kingdom.
According to the institute, the category won by Ma's auditorium in Cupertino on ?making the ordinary extraordinary?. More specifically, the judges highlighted advances in the use of glass as a structural component, detailing that the Steve Jobs Theater's 80-ton roof is the largest glass-supported structure in the world, without any additional reinforcement.
Ma's auditorium was also praised for the way it can accommodate tubes and cables in the 30mm joints between the ceiling and the glass panels, in addition to engineering strategies to protect the structure against seismic activity.
In all categories of the award, the institute said it evaluated five characteristics: excellence, creativity and innovation, elegance and details, sustainability and value (viability).
