Apple’s new eco-friendly retail mall will open in Dubai tomorrow and its architecture includes 186-foot curved glass storefront and a balcony that overlooks both the iconic Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountain.
According to a press release by Apple, Envisioned as space for the community to gather, learn and be entertained, Apple Dubai Mall will also serve as a venue to watch the spectacular evening fountain shows and will host Apple’s new global in-store experience.
The wings of the architecture were inspired by the traditional Arabic Mashrabiya, and are each locally fabricated from 340 carbon fibre reinforced polymer rods.
180 feet wide, Apple said the panels are one of the world's largest kinetic art installations.
New Creative Pros, the liberal arts equivalent to Apple’s technical Geniuses, will teach ‘Today at Apple’ sessions and offer individual advice and training to help customers take their creative skills to the next level.
All of the store’s 148 employees are ready to welcome customers from around the world and speak a collective 45 languages.
