Located at the General Motors Plaza in New York, the entrance to the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue is an iconic self-supporting glass cube. Designed by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson Architecture, this 32-foot glass structure is entirely free of structural steel. Once you enter the store from the plaza level, a glass elevator with a glass cylinder — which is wrapped by a circular staircase — takes you to the underground main level. The glass cube brings plenty of natural light underground. At night, the cube is lighted, creating an elegant glow.
