New Apple Park Drone Video Shows Off Steve Jobs Theater Ahead of Next Week's Event
Construction on Apple Park is nearing completion and Apple is putting the finishing touches on the Steve Jobs Theater where next week's iPhone-centric event will be held, according to a new video shared this evening by drone pilot Duncan Sinfield.
Sinfield's video offers up a close look at the now-finished theater and it depicts landscaping progress at the campus, both inside and outside of the ring-shaped main building.
The theater is a 20-foot tall glass cylinder that overlooks the main campus building and is surrounded by greenery. It boasts the world's largest freestanding carbon fiber roof and spans 120,000 square feet with an underground auditorium area that seats 1,000 people.
Apple named the theater in honor of late Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs, who envisioned the design for Apple Park before his death in 2011.
Apple's iPhone keynote, which takes place on Tuesday, September 12, will be the inaugural event at the Steve Jobs Theater. Apple announced Apple Park as the location for the event when it sent out media invites last Thursday.

And it does have benefits, for example people who work together on the same project won't need to drive for half an hour through heavy city traffic to whatever small building the other people are working in. Which benefits the whole city (less traffic). Not to mention they replaced concrete with (mostly) trees. Cities need more trees.
Anyone who wants privacy will just have internal walls put up. Easy, cheap, quick.
Apple has plenty of other people who can work on those products with a little direction from Ive/etc. No harm done, and it's good to spread the work around incase somebody decides to leave.
They had 25,000 employees in the city a couple years ago, and surely more today. Only half their employees can fit in this new building and less than a quarter at 1 Infinite loop – people at the old campus can stay where they are if moving would hurt productivity.
