France to get an almost transparent Apple Store

Aix en Provence, France is getting a new Apple Store according to ifoAppleStore. It'll be constructed in a way that'll make it almost transparent. It will be modeled somewhat from the New York City Apple store on the upper west side. A store near me in Lincoln Park, IL already has an almost all glass design as well.

Aix en Provence receives heavy tourism and could be considered a prime location. The area has seen a lot of construction lately with the addition of several up-scale stores and shops. The store should open to the public by late 2012 or early 2013.

Itd' be hot if it'd be 100% transparent on ALL sides. (Have the bathrooms and whatever else you need to hide in the basement)

A transparent roof would be awesome in a nice rainstorm particularly a night time one with frequent lightning.

I understand they want to make their stores like beautiful works of art but it seems to me they are putting form before function. It will have to be cleaned every hour on the hour or it will be full of fingerprints and bird poop. Yuck!

Ah, the Emperor's new Apple store! Only those with pure enough belief in the company can see the walls.

Watcher says:

Hmmm... Transparency. Now only if they could operate with that concept!

Tim says:

This a private corporation, you dolt. The only people they have to answer to is the stockholders.

Watcher says:

It's called a joke "YOU DOLT"! I take it humor has escaped you?
