    After general criticism of the new spaceship campus in terms of urban planing discussed here:’t-seem-to-fix.2055815/

    New reports are surfacing about Apple employees revolting against the new floor plans so hard, that Apple build separate buildings for some teams like the A-Chip team for example.

    So if these reports are true, Cook seems to have thrown out the idea of working together and now went back to giving them separate buildings.

    "[...] Johny Srouji's team. He's in charge of Apple's silicon, the A10, the A11, all of their custom silicon.
    When he was shown the floor plans, he was more or less just 'F--- that, f--- you, f--- this, this is bulls---.' And they built his team their own building, off to the side on the campus. So they're not even in — not only are they not going along with the open floor plans, but Srouji's team is in their own building. Maybe internally they're saying it's for security, or that's there's a logical reason for it, but my understanding is that that building was built because Srouji was like, 'F--- this, my team isn't working like this.'"

    This is the second report of a big group inside Apple passing on a spot at Apple Park.
