Today, Steve Jobs would have been 64 years old, and Tim Cook has taken to Twitter this morning with a remembrance of Jobs. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was born on February 24th, 1955, and today, he would have been celebrating his 64th birthday.
On Twitter, Tim Cook shared a brief video of a pond at Apple Park, giving remarks that Jobs’ “vision is reflected all around us at Apple Park.” Cook added that Apple has become the home for Apple innovation:
Steve’s vision is reflected all around us at Apple Park. He would have loved it here, in this place he dreamed up — the home and inspiration for Apple’s future innovations. We miss him today on his 64th birthday, and every day.
In development of Apple Park, Steve Jobs played a huge role. In June 2011, Jobs went to the Cupertino City Council to present a proposal for the new Apple campus. Several months later, he described his vision for what Apple Park would be:
It’s got a gorgeous courtyard in the middle, and a lot more. It’s a circle, so it’s curved all the way round. This is not the cheapest way to build something. Every pane of glass in the main building will be curved. We have a shot, at building the best office building in the world. I really do think that architecture students will come here to see it
