Project for Steve Jobs' monument was selected in St. Petersburg


An exhibition of draft projects for a future monument to Apple founder Steve Jobs has closed in St. Petersburg on September 6. The winning project surprisingly appeared to be a "Rubik's Cube" solar.


A competition to select a Steve Jobs monument project was announced on July 23. A total of 25 projects have made it into the final. The winner was chosen by a jury of St. Petersburg IT experts and by an online vote.


Soon after Jobs's death on October 5, 2011, a bronze monument to him was unveiled in Budapest, Hungary, while the tiny Brazilian town of Jundiai near Sao Paulo named a street after him. The city hall of the Ukrainian city of Odessa also announced plans to unveil a monument to the late Apple founder. The two-meter, hand-shaped steel memorial has a hole in the center in the shape of the Apple's trademark logo.
