Housing around 13,000 employees, Apple Park, as the headquarters is known, is a futuristic feat of engineering that contains the world’s largest piece of curved glass. Apple CEO Tim Cook told 60 Minutes in 2015 “the quality and the size” of the 3,000 sheets of glass that have been used at the headquarters “are above all that has ever been accomplished.” And according to a new report from Bloomberg, the glass is so flawless and unobtrusive that employees keep walking into it.
The bright young things of Apple
clear-minded in their bright circle
insulated from the dark, confusing and untidy world outside,
banging their heads against walls
so transparent that they cannot see that
what they cannot see is, all the same, stubbornly there,
is something I would have hated to miss.
