Apple’s new headquarters in Cupertino, California, Apple Park, encircles a 30-acre park with winding paths that traverse the campus, verdant surroundings, and open seating areas for employees to meet or lounge. Many of these areas include tension fabric structure pergolas to provide shady, cooler meeting places in the park.

CAST CONNEX® detailed and supplied a variety of custom cast steel nodes that connect the HSS members of the pergolas. The cast steel nodes provide the requisite rigidity and strength for the steel frames of the tension structures and also deliver a sleek, Apple-esq appearance to the pergolas.
