In 2017 construction on Apple’s new headquarters, called Apple Park, was finally completed.
2017年 苹果的新总部苹果公园终于竣工了
It took four years to build,and cost Apple over five billion dollars
它的建造历时四年 花费了苹果50多亿美元
That makes it one of the most expensive buildings on earth.
使其成为全球最贵的建筑之一
And many people have wondered what exactly Apple got for their money.
许多人想知道苹果的钱都花在了哪
So in this video, we’re going to take a look inside Apple Park
在这段视频中 我们就来一起看看苹果公园内部
and discover the buildings and facilities that make the headquarters so special.

Alright now let’s start off with the main building on Apple’s campus,
好了 现在让我们从苹果园区的主楼开始吧
which is officially called “The Ring.”
它被官方称为“圆环”
It features four stories of office space for over 12,000 employees.
拥有四层办公空间 可容纳超过1万2千名员工
A walkway lines the inner and outer perimeter of the building,
一条人行道沿着建筑的内外两侧排列
which means it’d take about 7 and a half minutes to reach the opposite side,
这意味着大约需要7分半钟才能到达对面
or about 15 minutes to walk all the way around.
或者花大概15分钟才能走完一整圈
But you may not mind the long walk, considering the view you’d have while taking it.
但考虑到沿途的风景 你可能不会介意长途跋涉
The Ring’s exterior is made up of 36 to 47 foot-long curved glass panels.
“圆环”的外观由36至47英尺长的曲面玻璃板组成
Resulting in an open, seamless panoramic view of the outdoor landscape.
从而形成开放无缝的户外景观全景
In fact, Apple Park was designed to be as open as possible
事实上 苹果公园的设计初衷是尽可能的开放
in order to encourage the free-flow of ideas through chance meetings between employees.
通过员工之间的偶遇来鼓励想法的自由流动
That’s why office spaces are formed into pods,
这就是为什么办公空间被分成小空间
where a worker could be in deep concentration one minute,
在这里 员工可能前一分钟还高度专注
then bump into a colleague in the next.
下一分钟就会和同事打个照面
But not everyone was enthusiastic about this approach.
但并不是每个人都对这种方式感兴趣
With many employees writing in to tech journalistst John Gruber
许多员工写信给科技记者约翰·格鲁伯
criticizing the open floor plan
批评这种开放式的楼层设计
Even more complained about the glass walls and doors,
还有更多抱怨是关于玻璃墙和玻璃门的
which were easy to run into when distracted.
因为一不留神就容易撞到它们
In fact, two workers were actually injured and required hospitalization
事实上 真有两名员工在撞到半透明的墙和门后
after walking into the building’s translucent walls and doors.
受伤并需要住院治疗
This prompted employees to stick posted notes on the glass
这迫使员工在玻璃上贴便条
to make sure the obstacles were more noticeable.
使玻璃墙更明显
but they were quickly removed because they detracted from the building’s design.
但很快就被移除了 因为它破坏了建筑的设计
Another way The Ring encourages employee interaction is with one big restaurant
“圆环”鼓励员工互动的另一种方式 是以一个大食堂
instead of several small ones located throughout the building.
取代了遍布大楼的小食堂
That means employees have to walk further to reach the cafe,
这意味着员工要走更远的路才能到餐厅
and increases the likelihood of interactions while eating,
从而增加了吃饭时互动的可能性
since everyone is forced into the same 58,000 square foot eating area.
因为大家都被迫使用同一个5万8千平方英尺的餐饮区
The restaurant itself is called Caffe Macs,
餐厅本身被称为Macs咖啡厅
and features four-story sliding glass doors, the largest in the world,
它拥有世界上最大的滑动玻璃门 足足四层楼高
that open to the courtyard on nice days.
天气好的时候 门会对着庭院打开
And to prove just how much Apple cares about every detail,
为了证明苹果公司是多么重视每一个细节
they actually patented their own pizza box
他们还给防止披萨受潮的披萨盒申请了专利
that prevents the crust from getting soggy.
并真的为此申请了专利
But there’s more to The Ring than meets the eye.
“圆环”还远不止表面上看到的这些
because hidden underneath the four story behemoth,
因为在这个四层楼高的庞然大物下面
is a two story parking garage
藏着一个双层停车场
finished with reflective white tile, domed ceilings,
装有反光的白色瓷砖 圆顶天花板
and traffic lights seamlessly integrated into the street signs.
以及无缝地融入了街道标识的交通信号灯
This allows workers to drive in and out of Apple park without obstructing the beautiful view.
这使得员工在开车进出苹果公园时不会妨碍美景
Speaking of which, the landscaping at Apple Park is one of its most important features.
说到这里 苹果公园的景观是它最重要的特色之一
Jobs loved the foliage work done on stanford’s campus.
乔布斯钟爱斯坦福大学校园里的绿植
and he tracked down one of the arborous responsible, David Muffley.
他找到了其中一位园林负责人 大卫·马法利
who oversaw the planting of 9,000 indigenous trees at Apple Park,
让他监督苹果公园9000棵本土树木的种植
hand picked not only for their appealing structure, but also their resistance to drought
精心挑选的树木 不仅有好看的形态 还有抗旱能力
which has only become more common.
而这已经变得越来越普遍
The courtyard area consists of mainly apricot, olive and Apple orchards,
庭院区主要由杏园 橄榄园和苹果园组成
plus an herb garden near the cafe.
在咖啡厅附近还有一个药草园
But there’s more than just foliage. Apple added an artificial pond
除了有一堆绿植 苹果还增加了一个人工池塘
that just like The Ring Building, also happens to be a perfect circle.
就像“圆环”一样 它恰好也是一个完美的圆形
there’s also a rectangular field with a rainbow structure
还有一片带有彩虹结构的矩形场地
that actually serves as a stage for speakers or performances.
它实际上是演讲或表演的舞台
The stage was actually co-designed by Jonathan Ive and Foster and Partners.
这个舞台由乔纳森·艾维和福斯特建筑事务所共同设计
It uses the same rainbow colors as the early Apple logo,
它使用了与早期苹果标志同款的彩虹色
and features rounded arches that can be fitted with lighting equipment.
还有可以安装照明设备的圆形拱门
But it’s important to point out
有必要说明的是
that the ring is just one of several buildings at Apple park.
“圆环”只是苹果公园的几栋建筑之一
If you travel to the northwest area, which you can reach by using one of the gray Apple bicycles,
如果你骑一辆灰色的苹果自行车去到西北边
you’ll find a building that may look a bit out of place.
你会发现一栋看起来有点格格不入的建筑
It’s called the Glendenning barn.
叫做格伦丁宁谷仓
and it wasn’t part of apple’s original plans.
它不在苹果最初的规划之中
The barn was built in 1916,
这个谷仓建于1916年
and happened to be on the land Apple purchased for their new headquarters.
恰好位于苹果公司为其新总部购买的土地上
They wanted to demolish it completely,
他们想过整个拆除它
but it had already been declared a historical site in 2004 by the city of Cupertino.
但早在2004年 库比蒂诺市就宣布它为历史遗迹
So after some discussion, Apple agreed to keep the barn
于是经过一番讨论 苹果公司同意保留谷仓
in use it to store maintenance tools and other landscaping materials.
用于存放维修工具和其他园林绿化材料
Beside Glendening, barn is a much larger building
在格伦丁宁谷仓旁边 有一座大得多的建筑
that was part of Apple’s plans.
这是苹果公司规划里的一部分
It’s a 100,000 square foot fitness and wellness center,
这是一个10万平方英尺的健身和健康中心
complete with changing rooms, showers, laundry services group, workout rooms.
配备完整的更衣室 淋浴 洗衣服务 健身房
and a two story yoga room covered in stone.
还有一间两层的石砌瑜伽室
But not just any stone,
但不是普通的石头
Jobs made sure it was sourced from a specific quarry in Kansas
乔布斯确保它来自堪萨斯州一个特定的采石场
and carefully distressed
并且精心加工
to make it look like this stone from his favorite hotel in Yosemite.
让它看起来像他在约塞米蒂最喜欢的酒店里的一样
Moving further south, you’ll find the sports fields,
再往南走 你会看到运动场
where workers can enjoy a game of basketball or tennis.
员工们可以在这里打篮球或网球
And even further South is the Apple park central plant,
再往南 是苹果公园的总动力场
which is attached to the southern parking garage.
它与南边的停车场相连
The central plant house’s utility equipment like fuel cells, backup generators,
总动力厂装有燃料电池 备用发电机
chillers, condenser water storage, hot water storage,
冷水机组 冷凝蓄水装置 热水储存器
an electrical substation, and water and fire pumps.
变电站 水泵和消防泵等公用设备
While the parking garage allows for an additional 9,000 spaces for workers
停车场为员工提供了额外的9千个停车位
for a total of 14,200 parking spaces at Apple Park.
加起来 苹果公园共有14200 个停车位
Heading East from the southern garage, you’ll find my personal favorite building,
从南边的车库往东走 你会看到我最喜欢的建筑
the Steve Jobs Theater.
史蒂芬·乔布斯剧院
It’s a circular building made up of curved glass panels
这是一座由弯曲玻璃板组成的圆形建筑
topped with the largest carbon fibre roof in the world.
顶部是世界上最大的碳纤维屋顶
There’s so many amazing details about this building,
关于这座建筑 有太多令人惊叹的细节
that I’ll probably make an entire video dedicated to it,
我可能会专门为它制作一个完整的视频
so make sure you’re subscribed for that.
所以一定要订阅我的频道
But long story short,
但长话短说
The glass panels actually act as support beams for the roof,
玻璃板实际上充当了屋顶的支撑梁
so no columns are necessary.
所以不需要用到柱子
And if you’re wondering where the actual theater is,
如果你在想真正的剧场在哪里
it’s all underground.
答案是它整个都在地底下
You can reach it by either taking the beautifully crafted curved staircase.
你可以通过这道制作精美的弧形楼梯到达
or by walking into a glass elevator that slowly rotates as it descends,
或者搭乘一个玻璃电梯 它在下降过程中会缓缓旋转
allowing it to have just one door instead of two.
这样就只需要一扇门 而不是两扇门
The theater itself holds 921 people,
剧院本身可容纳921人
about three times more than Apple’s previous town hall.
比苹果的老市政厅多出三倍
while still retaining an intimate feel.
同时还能保留着亲切的感觉
And while much of the Steve Jobs Theater is underground
虽然史蒂芬·乔布斯剧院大部分都位于地下
it was placed on the highest hillside in all of Apple Park.
但它坐落于整个苹果公园最高的山坡上
as a symbolic gesture of respect to the man it was named after.
作为对史蒂芬·乔布斯的致敬
Heading northeast from the theater is the visitors center.
从剧院往东北方向走 是游客中心
which is the only part of Apple Park open to the public.
这是苹果公园唯一对公众开放的部分
It’s a two-story building with four main areas
这是一栋两层楼的建筑 有着四个主要的区域:
An Apple Store featuring exclusive merchandise
一家苹果专卖店
like t-shirts, hats, tote bags and post cards.
专营t恤 帽子 大手提袋和明信片等独家定制商品
A 2,300-square-foot cafe,
一家2千3百平方英尺的咖啡厅
an exhibition area that features a 3D model of Apple Park
一个展览区 展示了苹果公园的3D模型
that visitors can explore in detail using augmented reality,
游客可以使用虚拟现实技术来探索细节
and a rooftop terrace that overlooks the entire campus.
还有一个能俯瞰整个园区的屋顶露台
The Visitor Center also has an underground parking garage with almost 700 spaces.
游客中心还有一个地下停车场 有近700个停车位
Now this five billion dollar headquarters has received its fair share of criticism,
这个价值50亿美元的总部已经受到了不少批评
for being too extravagant and its construction too perfectionist.
因为它太过奢侈和过于完美主义的建筑设计
But I think those words describe precisely
但我认为 这些话语恰好准确地描述了
the type of campus Steve Jobs wanted for Apple.
史蒂夫·乔布斯希望为苹果公司打造的那种园区
and the words of Tim Cook.
按照蒂姆·库克的话说
“Steve’s vision is reflected all around us at Apple Park.
“史蒂夫的愿景体现在苹果公园的方方面面
He would’ve loved it here, in this place he dreamed up.
他一定会喜欢这里 在他梦想的地方
the home and inspiration for Apple’s future innovations. “
是苹果未来创新灵感的家园”
