Construction facade of Stanford 2 Apple store gone, architecture shown
Construction photos from the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287293==http://www.macnn.com/articles/12/05/23/stanford.shop.to.use.glass.box.design/" rel='nofollow'>Stanford 2</a> Northern California Apple Store have leaked out. The store, previously only visualized by architectural rendering, uses a glass box design with all glass walls supporting a "floating" white roof. A similar approach has been taken with the Portland, Oregon store. The new store, when open, replaces a mini-store about 700 feet away that dates back to 2004.<br />
<br />
A report at <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287292==http://www.ifoapplestore.com/a-peek-behind-the-stanford-2-construction-curtain/" rel='nofollow'><em>ifoAppleStore</em></a> shows the framework for the roof, as well as most of the glass facade in place for the store. Most of the structural steel is in place, buttressed by scaffolding until the load is transferred to the glass sidewalls near the end of construction. The roof of the front glass-enclosed space was not put in place at the time the photos were taken.<br />
<br />
The store is expected to open for the 2013 holiday season.
