People Keep Running into Glass Walls and Doors at Apple Park

  • People Keep Running into Glass Walls and Doors at Apple Park

The campus in Cupertino, named for its extraterrestrial-style design, also has 45-foot high curved glass windows surrounding the entire building.

According to Bloomberg, the design is heavily focused on glass and includes work pods made out of plenty of glass. Some employees apparently came up with a fix by sticking post it notes on the glass walls, which was shortly removed by the staff as it didn't sit well with the architecture team.

The problem with Apple's glass walls is exacerbated by the fact that employees often walk around the building with their noses in their iPhones, a habit that's become quite common, especially among younger iPhone users. In a few cases, customers have lodged legal complaints against Apple on health and safety grounds for walking into Apple's trademark glass architectures.

It wouldn't the first time Apple got in trouble for putting its architectural vision before prioritizing safety.

Built by famed architect Norman Foster, the building is created to house about 13,000 employees. In 2011, Jobs reportedly described the building "a little like a spaceship landed".

During its opening past year, Apple designer Jony Ive told Wired that the structure is a "statement of openness, of free movement", as opposed to Apple's culture of secrecy. "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. It's not entirely clear how many such incidents have occurred, though people who are supposedly familiar with the situation told Bloomberg that this is something that has happened repeatedly since the campus opened. Not knowing that the walls aren't there isn't the problem. The suit, which was later settled out of court, claimed the company "was negligent ... in allowing a clear, see-through glass wall and/or door to exist without proper warning".
