With Inspiration from a floating lantern, World Tech Gaint Apple opened its unique and exclusive store in Singapore's Marina Bay that sits directly on the water. With this, Apple has established its third retails location in Singapore.
Apple's new Marina Bay Sands store is entirely unique and surrounded by water. It offers amazing 360-degree panoramic view of the city and it has got spectacular skyline.
This store has a sphere which is first-of-its-kind with all glass dome structure that is entirely self-supported and comprised of 114 pieces of glass with just 10 narrow vertical mullions for structural connection.
At the apex of the dome, an oculus is located which offers a flooding ray of light that travels through space. Apple says oculus is inspired by Pantheon in ROME. The interior of the glass is lined with custom baffles uniquely shaped to counter sun angles and offer nighttime lighting effects.
For sure this is one amazing concept of construction.
