The Steve Jobs Theater Pavilion in Apple Park (the company’s “spaceship” headquarters) is the largest structure in the world solely supported by glass.
The Steve Jobs Theater Pavilion won a 2018 Structure Award from the Institution of Structural Engineers who had to say about the theater:
The Steve Jobs Theater Pavilion represents a culmination of the advances in structural glass technology born from the close relationship between Apple and EOC. The 47m carbon fibre roof is the largest of its kind, comprised of 44 radial panels, which were assembled on site before being raised into position in one lift. This 80 tonne roof is supported by a 7m high glass cylinder, made up of glass panels, each consisting of four layers of 12mm thick plies, which hold up the roof without any additional support. It is the largest structure in the world solely supported by glass.
