Apple is in the process of building an Apple-style round glass amphitheater! A design patent for the Steve Jobs Theater is now in full effect. The on-campus showcase where Apple revealed the iPhone X, was published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Tuesday.
The underground auditorium can hold approximately 1,000 attendees. The theater will be equipped with hidden walls and a state-of-the-art projection system all under a carbon fiber roof. The entire campus will reportedly cost $5 billion to build.
Apple is now staking a claim on how the elevated portion will look. So far, the building has a circular design with clear glass walls. Apple filed for the patent in 2016 and includes the building of 4 different inventors to come up with the final design. The building will have 2 in Hong Kong and 2 in San Francisco. It’s current name is “Building.” Apple has increasingly tied the glass design and aesthetic of its stores and other real estate to its brand worldwide.
The Apple theatre is expected to be a one-of-a-kind type of theatre. Here are some more pictures and drawings of Apple’s theater:
