Apple building massive structure at Flint Center for September 9th special event

“Apple today issued invitations for its upcoming iPhone 6 event on September 9, which is also said to include its much-anticipated wearable device,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors. “According to the invitations, Apple is planning to host the event at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts at De Anza College in Cupertino, the same location where Steve Jobs introduced the original Mac 30 years ago.”

“For the occasion, it appears that Apple has been building a massive structure on the campus, which has been kept under tight wraps with a white barricade,” Clover reports.

“A MacRumors reader has sent in images of a mysterious structure at the Flint Center, which appears to span three stories and is protected by ‘scads’ of security people,” Clover reports. “Administrators had previously declined to comment on what the structure is for, stating only ‘We are not at liberty to discuss that due to client wishes.'”

Jim Dalrymple reports for The Loop, “When I saw that Apple was going to hold their Sept. 9 event at the Flint Center for Performing Arts, I thought I would take a drive over and see if anything was happening. To be honest, I didn’t expect much because all of the work would be going on inside—I was wrong.”

“Here are a few pictures,” Dalrymple reports. “As you can imagine, security is very tight around the construction.”

    1. Google barge was just a bunch of shipping containers piled on top of each other. They had two barges. They moved the SF bay one to Stockton where it just sits. No activity seems to be going on there.

  1. I just drove over to see it. I had not been on that part of Stevens Creek for a while. The thing looks to be about 3 stories high, I estimate it is about 120 feet square. They will not let you within 100 feet of it. I asked a couple of students how long it has been there and they said about a month. That is all I could find out.

    1. I believe that Steve Jobs, after viewing the 1997 mathematics-based horror film Cube, filed the concept away for future use, just as he had done for the 1951 cautionary tale The Thing From Another World (“Keep watching the skies!”).

      We may be witnessing an actualisation of two of Jobs’s hallucinogenic visions, in the first case a recreation of the enigmatic Cube at Flint Centre, in the second a recreation of the Antarctic alien saucer at the new “spaceship” campus at Cupertino.

      Just a notion, crazed though it may seem.

  2. I’m thinking it may be some sort of status or tribute to Steve Jobs and the original Mac since it was first unveiled there – to be dedicated or presented along with the new products, and the “2 story building” is temporary to conceal it in the meantime. Just guessing here…..
