But Junod also gets gets glimpses that other recent profiles haven't — at Lasseter's incredible house (steam engines in glass ceilings, hidden chambers, braided wiring) but also inside Jobs' influence on the Pixar machine. From the article: The building in Emeryville is, in Lasseter's words, "Steve Jobs's movie." Jobs not only designed it; he designed it so that people inside it would behave a certain way. "Steve really believes in the accidental meeting," Lasseter says, and to that end he designed the building around a cathedral-like atrium, which is also where he located all the bathrooms and the subsidized company commissary. "Steve really believes that it's important to have great food," Lasseter says.
