WORLD’S FIRST FLOATING APPLE STORE OFFICIALLY OPENS ON SEPTEMBER 10 AT SINGAPORE’S MARINA BAY SANDS

According to Deirdre O’Brien, Apple’s senior vice president for retail and people, when Apple Marina Bay Sands opens its doors to the public on Thursday (September 10), it will be the world’s first Apple store to sit directly on the water.

It is an eye-catching spherical structure that will boast an uninterrupted 360-degree panoramic view of Singapore’s skyline.

It’s an architectural treat of sorts – the dome was inspired by Rome’s Pantheon, for one.

O’Brien said this is the first of its kind, an all-glass dome structure comprises 114 pieces of glass, with only ten narrow vertical mullions serving as a structural connection.

But more than just bragging rights for local fanboys and fangirls, Apple’s decision to do it here is an affirmation of the tech giant’s affinity for Singapore.
