‘The Apple tree’ by Foster + Partners blossoms in Bangkok
Housed under a "cantilevered tree canopy" roof structure, Apple Central World’s distinctive architecture is "brought to life with the first-ever all-glass design," says the tech giant. Located in the heart of Ratchaprasong, Bangkok’s iconic intersection district, the striking Apple store designed by Foster + Partners forms a new social subject in this part of the city. It also contributes to the backdrop of the famed New Year celebrations and a program of other regular festivities. The store is fronted by a generously sized public plaza and Bangkok’s renowned Erawan shrine is sited across the road. Adding to the spectacle, 'The Apple tree', as it's been quickly nicknamed, is overlooked by a busy web of vehicle and pedestrian routes that weave around the site.
