Buzzfeed has put together an interesting article detailing the oversight and input Steve Jobs had over the construction of Pixar's main building on its 22-acre campus in Emeryville, Calif.

The building, which was recently renamed The Steve Jobs Building, now stands in honor and memory of Jobs, who purchased Pixar from LucasArts in 1986 and was CEO until the company was sold to Disney in 2007 for US$7.4 billion.

In particular, the article shares some fascinating insights into the campus' main building and Jobs' obsessive attention to detail in its construction. Senior Design Project Manager Craig Payne, who knew Jobs from his time at NeXT, tells of Jobs' very specific expectations for the building. From the shading of brick colors to the bolting, not welding, of the steel for the structure, Jobs' stipulations were to the nth degree.

The article is a fascinating read into the culture at Pixar, and how Jobs' attention to details impacted and shaped that culture.
