Apple’s Latest Store Has a Floor That Floats in Mid-Air
Ryan Simmons / 3 years ago
Apple’s latest store, one in Hangzhou, China, has a first floor that appears to float, with no visible supports.
The store was co-designed by British architecture firm Foster + Partners, founded by legendary architect Norman Foster – the same people who worked alongside Steve Jobs to design the new ‘spaceship’ campus that Apple is building to replace its current headquarters.
Apple’s new campus is scheduled to open next year, with construction well underway and with foundations largely finished.
