The reason why the statue of Jobs is built in Budapest is that the company Graphisoft in Budapest has released architectural CAD software called 'ArchiCAD', and in 1984 the first version was on Apple's computer 'Lisa'. Jobs, who saw this exhibition at CeBIT in 1984, decided to fully support the development and distribution of 'ArchiCAD' with Apple, and funded Graphisoft, which was a young company at the time. And gave a computer for development.

Budapest at the time was under the influence of communism, making it difficult to get technical support from such computers, and development would not have continued without Apple's support, and even around the world. Graphisoft continues to exist because Apple has continued to provide a means of distribution to today.

Currently, ArchiCAD has about 200,000 users, and even when Jobs left Apple in 1985, it was said that 'Graphisoft is the guardian of Apple's soul and spirit', 12 years ago. He also supported him when Jobs later returned to Apple.
And the environment of this Graphisoft park itself embodies the spirit of Jobs and is the most suitable place to mourn the soul of Jobs.
