Pixar has reportedly named the studio's main building after Steve Jobs, reports Pixar Times.

On Twitter, a Pixar employee shared an image taken by a friend, stating that the building had been named “The Steve Jobs Building.” Peering in through the windows, you can clearly see the outline of Sulley, confirming that this is the main building that Steve Jobs himself played a major role in designing. He came up with the idea that the building should be centered around a large atrium, which would lead to accidental collaboration that may not occur if everyone was stuck in their individual offices.

While most remember Jobs for his role in founding and running Apple, he also co-founded and served as chief executive of Pixar Animation Studios before the studio was sold to Disney. After which, he sat on the The Walt Disney Company's board of directors.

I love it. Great idea, great tribute. Oh, and "accidental collaboration"...that's awesome and could only have come from Steve himself. :-)
