Apple's Prototype Palo Alto Store Will Basically Be Inside Out, With TreesS

Mercury News found that Apple's going to kill its downtown Palo Alto store and build a crazy one one block over. Essentially, it's the California equivalent of a transparent NY cube, which means it has trees inside.

The architectural firm responsible for the skylights that will feed the trees inside is the same one that built that transparent cube in New York, and plans to make the store 10,700 square feet and basically make the thing sort of inside out. The point? To "[minimize] the transition from outside to inside and [draw] customers in." [Mercury News via Macrumors]
