Probably. Having worked at Microsoft HQ, they actually had taxi shuttle things that could take you from one building to another, so there's no way Apple doesn't have something similar.

>> No.68879251

Because its designed by Fosters and eckersley o callahagn.

Also. Apple refused to put etching or frett patterns internally, clear glass partitions keep breaking because people walk face first into them.

The shuttles are 20 min intervals

Insider info here:
The underground parking was full at 1/4 capacity, so they had to build another lot
This lot is up to 20 mins away
The cafeterias ability to churn out food are full at 1/2 capacity
There is like 6 tables tot
The glass doors have shattered already
The curved glass windows amplifies noises- heels sound like gunshots
2-3 man offices have 4-5 people often packed into them
A good chunk of your lunch is spent walking or waiting for food
HVAC issues
It fucking sucks ass.

>HVAC issues
thot it didnt have 'HVAC', as such?
- "Rather than using air conditioning, 4,300 hollow concrete slabs act as the floors, ceilings and HVAC system, funnelling cool and warm air through the offices, in effect making it a ‘breathing’ building.."
in principle, sounds worthy and all - practice tho, when you are overcrowding offices, co-workers with differing cultural hygiene, etc. idk, just interested this would (or wouldnt) work

Since nobody posted it, this was a plan originally proposed by Steve Jobs, a few months before he died, at the Cupertino city council. He was asking for permission to proceed with the project.
