Pixar Main Building Renamed After Steve Jobs

Last year, Pixar opened up a brand new building on their campus in Emeryville and titled it Brooklyn. However, as far as I'm concerned, the original building built in 2000 has never had an actual name - that is, until now.

This building will from now on be referred to as The Steve Jobs Building. Mr. Jobs was known to most as the head of Apple, but he was also the co-founder of Pixar and helped the company kick off when he bought it from Lucasfilm back when it was called the Graphics Group, and was CEO at the studio until Disney acquired it in 2006. It's been one year and one month since Steve Jobs passed away, and the company that he set the foundation for is now paying tribute to him by renaming their main facility after him.

Jobs had an integral part in designing this building, so this is really an absolutely appropriate and touching way to honor the late innovator. He may not be walking this Earth with us anymore, but Steve Jobs lives on in the legacy he left behind, not only at Apple, but at our favorite animation studio in the world.
