Apple to Open Office in 'Futuristic' Vancouver Tower

Apple is planning to open an office in highly desired location in Vancouver, Canada reports Bloomberg. The company has leased space in a 24-story office building at 400 West Georgia owned by Westbank, where companies like Deloitte and IWG plc's Spaces co-working unit will also be housed.

400 West Georgia has a unique design that featuring stacked stainless steel cubes interspaced with greenery and arranged around a central concrete core. The design was reportedly inspired by a Japanese paper lantern.


The office, which is still under development and is scheduled to be completed in spring 2020, will use glass floors that will overlook the city. Apple is planning to occupy two floors of the 24 floor building.

Looks like a rubik’s cube that someone just gave up on.

That's quite the juxtaposition, a modern glass tower sitting next to the Roman Colosseum inspired Central Library.

Disgusting. Modernist architecture is absolutely horrific. It's demoralizing, ugly and degenerate.

A total assault on the senses, on our intuitive and evolved sense of beauty and aesthetics.

Unsurprising that Apple under Tim Cook would approve of it though. That's the way the company has been going for a long time now.

An ugly office tower to design increasingly ugly products.


Boy you're pessimistic. I actually felt a little more miserable after reading this.

You're starting to see reality clearer then. But this shouldn't make you miserable, it should make you angry. And anger is a good thing when channeled appropriately. More people need to wake up and actually think about this stuff in a more sophisticated manner. These things are psychologically bad for us. We're not supposed to live in environments stacked with hideous monstrosities like that. We shouldn't accept them being foisted upon us.


Such woke

Personally I’ll take the Rubik’s cube design over the beige lifeless ‘70s eyesores, but each to their own.

But why design it like that other than just cause.


Great architects have been pushing boundaries for centuries.

Agreed. It doesn’t resonate with any of the surrounding architecture. This architect is a total narcissist and/or an arrogant a$$h0le. Fortunately, Vancouver sits on a faultline, and it’ll all come crashing down,... jenga-style, by the looks of it. Hopefully after hours.
