@Architect: You don't know Steve Jobs. Working for him twice, he designed much at NeXT, Apple and their manufacturing facilities for NeXT [entirely], the original Apple Manufacturing facilities and not surprisingly unique architectural pieces.

@Architect,

1) What part of Design Patent from the US Patent Office don't you get?

2) I doubt that the architect had the vision for what Apple wanted. I think that too many architects get credit for client ideas.

3) I think that I smell snobbery and contempt.

Patent? The works of an architect or author are protected by a copyright, but not a patent. And although every client contributes his input, I doubt that Steve Jobs possessed special architectural talents in addition to his other talents. (Too many clients are unjustly attributed the credit for the talent of their architect.)
