It features a cantilevered carbon fiber roof that was designed to look like it floats, along with staircases, stone walls, and terrazzo floors that match the aesthetic of the rest of the campus.

Inside, there's a large 3D model of Apple Park that provides guests with information about the campus through an augmented reality experience provided through dedicated iPads.

A store area offers a range of Apple products and accessories, including Apple Park-exclusive T-shirts, hats, postcards, baby onesies, playing cards, and tote bags. A cafe built into the Visitor's Center offers coffee, tea, and snacks.

On the roof, there's a roof terrace that offers views of the main building and the landscaping, which includes more than 9,000 trees. While visitors can view the rest of Apple Park from the Visitor's Center, the other areas of the campus are off limits.

That building will stand as a monument, should Apple ever find itself on hard times/broke.
Why do so many people feel the need to bring up Apple “going broke”? Lol...

They’re close to being the world’s first trillion dollar company, 10 years later still have lines outside their stores for new iPhones and the list goes on.

They’re doing just fine...

Roofs made of carbon fiber. Sigh. No wonder the iPhone X costs $1000. Carbon fiber is really nice looking, light, and strong, but it is extremely costly. If they reduced their use of unnecessary materials, then the prices of products could go down, increasing potential sales.
Seems like their sales are doing just fine though...

They are doing very well. I don't think anyone disputes that. What I find worrying is that in less than ten years, they've begun to show this smug arrogance that suggests they will be at the top forever . History says they won't. Some day someone else will come along. They always do.

Divide the cost of the roof by the number of iPhone X's they've sold (and are forecast to sell) and get back to me.

Right, because the cost savings on changing the type of roof metal on this building would totally be enough to change the cost of 60 million iphones they will ship this quarter

I will assume that a majority of the folks visiting this forum own an Apple product. So, in effect, we have collectively financed this beautiful piece of architecture and the thousands upon thousands of employees that Apple has hired to work there. Then, of course, there is all of the tax revenue that the city, state, and federal government gleans from this highly successful company.

More times than not, I'm quite critical and cynical of Apple, but I most certainly see no reason why they shouldn't have such an iconic facility.
