Shanghai Apple Store Opens for Business This WeekendS

Chinese Apple fan club members have a new meeting place to talk about Apple in, with the Shanghai Apple Store opening this weekend. Fanatics descend from street level through a 40-foot cylinder, then serenely glide in via glass staircase.

Not so much a Shanghai Dream Cube, more of a standard, US-style collection of glass and white surfaces. Not a patch on artistic Paris, either. [Shanghaiist]
