Pixar names its main office building in dedication to former CEO Steve Jobs
Pixar, the makers of superb films like Monsters Inc. and more recently Brave has named its main office building in honor of the late Steve Jobs. The building which is part of the Pixar campus now proudly displays the sign “The Steve Jobs Building”, the new comes from Pixar Times.
On Twitter, a Pixar employee shared an image taken by a friend, stating that the building had been named “The Steve Jobs Building.” Peering in through the windows, you can clearly see the outline of Sulley, confirming that this is the main building that Steve Jobs himself played a major role in designing.
He came up with the idea that the building should be centered around a large atrium, which would lead to accidental collaboration that may not occur if everyone was stuck in their individual offices. I find this to be the perfect way to honor the legacy of Steve Jobs. Placing his name above the main building not only reminds those who walk through the entrance of his importance to the formation of the studio, but is also a meaningful representation of his influence on the famed building.
This is a well-deserved dedication as Pixar was in a lot of trouble before Steve Jobs stepped in and financed the work of the studio before it became profitable. He put a lot of his own money into Pixar’s projects believing in the employee’s ; he was right to do so. Without his help, we may never have had the chance to enjoy brilliant movies like Toy Story, Finding Nemo and Wall-E; now that input will never be forgotten.
