This summer, 12,000 Apple employees will start to move into this great disc of a building, which has been eight years coming and is said to have cost $5bn – making it the world's most expensive office.Jobs managed the spec as the control freak he was, insisting on irreproachable door furniture and stone from a Kansas quarry that was distressed to make it look like the walls of a Yosemite hotel he was fond of.Over the past two decades, three bad things have been happening with office design, and Apple Park puts all of them right.Jobs's edifice is a hymn to the importance of offices in general.Fashionable office designers delight in making work spaces look like the hideous apartments of imaginary hipsters – Airbnb's office in San Francisco is filled with spaces that look like funky sitting rooms, kitchens and even a "nerd cave".Most radical of all, Apple Park is made for grown-ups.
