In Singapore there is the first floating Apple Store

It has a spherical shape and lights up during the night giving life to spectacular plays of light on the water

Located on a stretch of water that was formerly occupied by the Avalon nightclub on Singapore's waterfront, home to the luxury hotel Marina Bay Sands, it features a peculiar spherical shape and is the third Apple Store in Singapore after Orchard Road, opened in 2017, and the Apple Jewel Changi Airport, located in a mammoth structure that, among other things, can boast the highest indoor waterfall in the world.

Apple has created a structure that can amaze both during the day, when it looks like a spaceship from science fiction films of the 90s and the glass panels reflect the skyline of the Downtown Core and the movement of water (the dome of the pavilion it shrinks allowing light to penetrate inside), and during the night when it literally comes to life by delicately lighting and evoking the design of the traditional lanterns used during the Mid-Autumn Festival held in the city-state.
