Apple's 'floating' store in Singapore will open on September 10th

The store is called the Apple Marina Bay Sands, and is located in a luxury district of Singapore full of shops, restaurants, and the Marina Bay Sands hotel and casino.

The building has a 360-degree panoramic views of the city that shows a remarkable look of the skyline.

Under the new trial for enlarged gatherings, Marina Bay Sands plans to hold the Singapore International Energy Week Conference 2020, from October 26 to 30.

Inspired by the Pantheon in Rome, an oculus is built at the apex of the dome, letting a ray of light flood the interior.

Custom designed baffles are shaped and positioned along the dome's interior to block incoming sun, keeping customers comfortable while providing a nighttime lighting effect.

With Singapore being known as a green garden city, the Apple Marina Bay Sands also has trees lining the inside of the dome, helping to provide guests with additional shade and a place to rest.
