Pixar honors Steve Jobs by naming a building
Pixar named “Steve Jobs” one of the headquarters buildings, in memory of former head of the company between 1986 – when it separated from Lucasfilm – and 2006, when the company was acquired by Disney.
The “Steve Jobs Building” is the new name for the main building of the animated film studio, which they say employees, was designed in part by himself.
According to the biography by Walter Isaacson, Jobs wanted a space that would promote collaboration between workers in different areas, that boost creativity. It also sought that the building was not “standard”, but “would look good in 100 years.”
