When Steve Jobs said he had the best architects in the world working on Apple Campus 2, he wasn’t kidding. He was talking about Foster + Partners. It all started when Norman Foster, the founder and chairman, received a phone call from Jobs out of the blue. Speaking in the promotional video about Apple Campus 2 he recollects the call. “It’s Steve. Hi Norman, I need some help,” he remembers. “I was out there three weeks later.”
