Buildings We Like- BCJ

We are going to try a regular entry to our blog by highlighting buildings that either impress us, we find simply striking, or blow our minds.

First up are our designs by our friends at Bohlin Cywinski Jackson who have been designing Apple Stores for many years. I have had the pleasure of visiting all the flagship stores in New York, and it is hard to say which one is my favorite.

The first one was the conversion of an abandoned post office on Spring Street in the Soho area. That's Ethan on the bridge:

Apple Soho-002

The next location is probably the most well known- 5th Avenue at the Plaza. If you have a craving for Mac @ midnight (I don't mean mac 'n cheese), this is the place:


A riot of glass & reflection:


On 14th street, and old warehouse building was converted to the next store. I think the building renovation is as equally spectacular as the stair. The view from Pop Burger- delicious:

Pop Views-004

I still wonder how dropped gloves are removed from the central glass support:

Apple Meatmarket - 3

Cal on the bridge:

Apple Meatmarket - 5

The newest store on on Broadway in the Upper West Side. These stores get more elegent, striking and simple with each new one:
