Apple store with a Macbook roof in Chicago!
There is a new flagship Apple Store is under construction in downtown Chicago, and on Thursday, workers added a giant Apple logo on the roof, making the building look like a Mac Book.
Designed by London-based Foster+Partners, the store is a relocation of Apple’s original Chicago flagship and is a 20,000-square-foot space which, upon completion, will have all-glass walls and a thin, carbon fiber roof… that looks like a MacBook.
“The roof is made from a lightweight material used in yacht hulls to keep it thin, writes the Chicago Tribune, it is four feet thick at its widest point and four inches at its narrowest, with a giant Apple logo on top.
When it is finished, the store will include many of the new elements that were introduced at a San Francisco store last year, introducing a outdoor plaza and a video wall with gathering space called “The Forum.”
Apple has not indicated when the new Chicago store will open, but you can watch the construction crew fuss with its over-sized logo above.
