Steve Jobs Statue

On October 5, 2011, Steve Jobs died in his Palo Alto home, aged 56. His death certificate listed respiratory arrest as the immediate cause of death, with "metastatic pancreas neuroendocrine tumor" as the underlying cause. This was one day after the announcement of the iPhone 4S which was initially disappointing. GRAPHISOFT erected this bronze statue of Steve Jobs shown below in Budapest.

Gabor Bojar hired Hungarian sculptor Erno Toth to create a statue of Steve Jobs:

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.
