Apple has built a whopping 357 Apple Stores over the past decade, challenging the norms of architecture with their beautiful buildings. Thomas Park has put together a massive gallery of all 357 stores to showcase their unique beauty.
357 stores and counting later, Apple is tops in sales per square foot, and they did it by applying many of the same principles as they do to their products: natural materials, understated aesthetics, and daringly innovative processes.
Anyway, one thing I wanted to do was go back and see how Apple storefronts have evolved over the past decade. I couldn’t find anywhere to do this easily, so I decided to create a gallery myself.
I must say, it’s a pretty amazing experience scrolling through the various storefronts, and observing how the face of Apple’s retail stores has changed from building to building, and evolved over the years.
Each building is a stunning and usually minimal piece of architecture, artfully formed from various materials and marked with tastefully situated Apple logos – it’s all part of the Apple Store experience, and you can see it all at Park’s full gallery (organized by when the stores were built) at this link.
