The new Visitor Center at the Norman Foster-designed Apple campus in Cupertino, California is now open to the public. The center serves as a gateway to the 175-acre Apple Park and its centerpiece: a mammoth, 2.8 million-square-foot headquarters building defined by its donut shape and fully transparent exterior, clad in the world’s largest panels of curved glass. The campus will also include a public café, two miles of nature trails, research facilities, a 100,000 square foot employee fitness center, and the 1,000-seat Steve Jobs Theater.

Sited within an olive grove, the Visitor Center in many ways mimics the main building, known as the Ring Building.
