The ar­chi­tects

Mac Format - - APPLE’S NEW HQ -

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.”

Foster + Part­ners is a world renowned firm of ar­chi­tects based in Lon­don with of­fices world­wide and has been in­volved in cre­at­ing in­no­va­tive work­places and many other types of struc­tures for over four decades. Its ground­break­ing de­signs in­clude the UAE Pav­il­ion at the Shang­hai Expo 2010, the Mil­len­nium Bridge in the UK, Kuwait In­ter­na­tional Air­port and the Sage Gateshead.
