Apple new campus

Menurut buku biografi Steve Jobs, desain awal dari kampus baru Apple berbentuk seperti pacuan kuda besar yang terbuat dari 3 setengah lingkaran. Steve Jobs akhirnya memberitahukan pada arsiteknya untuk mengubahnya karena putranya, Reed, berkomentar bahwa desainnya mirip dengan alat kelamin pria.

When he first showed me the models and plans in his living room, the building was shaped like a huge winding racetrack made of three joined semicircles around a large central courtyard.

When he got home that evening, Jobs showed off the drawings at dinner, and Reed joked that the aerial view reminded him of male genitalia. His father dismissed the comment as reflecting the mind-set of a teenager. But the next day he mentioned the comment to the architects. “Unfortunately, once I’ve told you that, you’re never going to be able to erase that image from your mind,” he said. By the next time I visited, the shape had been changed to a simple circle.

Dengan kata lain, desain kampus Apple tidak akan menjadi bahan tertawaan karena bentuknya yang seperti penis. Thanks to Reed for his mind-set.
