Apple's new spaceship campus has one flaw

18 February 2018

Part of that construction hold-up was down to just how demanding Apple has been with its architects, contractors, and the specialists doing the internal fit out. "While it is a technical marvel to make glass at this scale, that's not the achievement", Jony Ive, Apple's design chief, told the magazine in May.

The whole building is surrounded by curved glass, and work spaces inside are also made with a lot of glass.

MarketWatch asked Apple for comment on the issue and any mitigations it has sought to enact.

The extent of the problem and any steps taken to address it are hard to determine, as Apple keeps a tight lid on the new campus.

But after the Apple Park campus opened earlier this year, the technology giant has discovered one downside to its obsession with stylish aesthetics. However, the notes were removed because they detracted from the building's design, the people said. After the unveiling of the first look, the campus architecture was praised by fans and publications for its sleek appearance. "The achievement is to make a building where so many people can connect and collaborate and walk and talk".

Employees, including those injured, haven't spoken publicly about the incident as Apple maintains a tight non-disclosure policy.

After the smacking accidents, employees tagged the walls with sticky notes to avoid recurrence. Unfortunately, their effort was curbed after superiors thought that the notes would interfere with the building's design.

The "dumbass walks into a glass door" bit is so hack that it was on Two and a Half Men before Charlie Sheen went all AIDS-crazy and tried to strangle Chuck Lorre or whatever. If Apple is found to be in violation of the law, it could attract fines and implement other safety measures, according to the California Department of Industrial relations spokeswoman, MarketWatch reported.
