apple's spaceship campus to host the iPhone 8 launch

one of the most anticipated tech events of the year is about to happen and apple just sent the invite. with a short line saying ‘let’s meet at our place’, the gathering will take place at the new foster + partnersapple park, unveiling not only the expected iPhone 8, but also their new auditorium named after steve jobs.

situated atop a hill — one of the highest points within the campus — apple’s steve jobs auditorium overlooks the main $5 billion ‘spaceship’ building. the theater has a 20-foot-tall glass cylinder entrance, 165 feet in diameter, that supports a metallic carbon-fiber roof. with a 1,000-seat capacity, people are speculating that the apple events will start to become more exclusive as it has 6,000 less seats than their previous event location, the bill graham civic auditorium.

‘steve’s vision for apple stretched far beyond his time with us. he intended apple park to be the home of innovation for generations to come,’ said tim cook, apple’s CEO. ‘the workspaces and parklands are designed to inspire our team as well as benefit the environment. we’ve achieved one of the most energy-efficient buildings in the world and the campus will run entirely on renewable energy.’
