Graphisoft Park and AIT-Budapest have dedicated a statue honoring the late Steve Jobs in Budapest today, according to a press release from the company.

---
Commissioned by GRAPHISOFT Founder and Chairman of the Board, Gabor Bojar, the statue is the first in the world honoring the late founder of Apple, who passed away on October 5. Crafted by Hungarian sculptor Erno Toth, the life-like bronze statue stands near the entrance of architectural software maker GRAPHISOFT's Budapest headquarters.

The relationship between GRAPHISOFT and Apple can be traced to the 1980's, when Jobs came across the first version of GRAPHISOFT's ArchiCAD software at the 1984 CeBIT in Germany. His first impressions of the software led him to throw Apple's support behind the development and distribution of ArchiCAD. "Apple's support included cash and computers at a time when GRAPHISOFT was a small company with limited resources, working within the economic and political confines of what was, at the time, communist Hungary," Gabor Bojar said. Apple also introduced GRAPHISOFT to its worldwide distribution network, which remains a cornerstone of the business today. "With its attention to excellence in every detail, Graphisoft Park's environment embodies the spirit of Steve Jobs," Viktor Varkonyi, CEO of GRAPHISOFT said. "I can't think of a better place to commemorate the man and his legacy," he continued.
