New Apple Store: Melbourne, Australia

This new Apple store proposal is part of a $200 million redevelopment in Melbourne, Australia. It features a glass atrium ceiling, and will be adjacent to a hotel and shopping complex connected by a clear, circular-panel walkway. Over the last 100 years, this site has been redeveloped twice, most recently housing the Fun Factory, a historical amusement center that had fallen into disrepair.

Apple fanboy or not, the center has some cool architecture. And ironically, the minimal Apple shop is more imposing, monolithic structure despite its shorter stature.
