While reading the new CLOG issue, focusing on apple,
It just hit me, while reading about structural glass, innovation, objects to architecture, that there seems to be a conflict of interest. The magnificent glass panels of the new flagship stores, example 5th avenue 2.0, present a clear conflict, on one hand the architecture spreads it’s utopian ideal, minimal relief from our chaotic lives, a transparent haven for all - but technically this architecture does not provide the optimal conditions for the functional use of the products it holds, and so the building finds its place underground.
It seems as if Steve should have hired Petra Blaisse as a consultant alongside the magnificent Sir Norman Foster.
It seems the “anti-glare” screen is the real hero.
