'Designed by Apple in California?' tweeted one user.
While opening to much acclaim earlier this year, the design of Apple's new flagship store in Chicago apparently did not account for the snow that falls each winter in the Windy City. The transparent building features a sleek silver roof that resembles a closed MacBook, as well as a public plaza intended as a community gathering space.
The Michigan Avenue Apple Store in Chicago is probably one of the best looking store designs in the city. According to 9to5mac and local blogger Matt Maldre, Apple has chose to address this problem by roping off all of the walkways around the store except for the entrance.
The curved, 32-foot-tall glass facade that seamlessly wraps the store hasn't gotten out of the cold weather unscathed, either.
According to a report by The Verge, frozen chunks of snow and icicles sliding off the riverfront building's gutter-less, laptop-esque roof pose a serious threat to pedestrians. It snows. The snow falls off the roof. Because the store is sited on the bank of the Chicago River and meant to act as a "Town Square", Apple's closure also means that the riverfront will be blocked off as well. Tribune columnist Blair Kamin called the Chicago store "a gem" that "represents a skillful evolution of the company's architectural brand".
Recent pictures of the area around the building showed roped off areas with orange cones and signs that read "CAUTION: Watch for Falling Snow and Ice".
Despite Chicago being a city that gets hit hard in the winter, Christopher Chwedyk, a consultant for the store's architects, says that ice wasn't a concern when the store was being built.
