There will soon be an amazing new Apple Store in Aix en Provence, France, reports ifoAppleStore. The store is reportedly being built in a way that make it almost completely transparent – a pretty impressive architectural feat, to be sure.

The store, rendered above, will take design cues from Apple’s New York City store on the upper west side, as well as from a store near Lincoln Park, IL. which also has a design made mostly of glass.

Aix en Provence is an extremely heavy area for tourism, and should be an exceptional location for the store, which is expected to ne open to the public sometime late this year or in early 2013.
