Apple cube

Apple Store, 5th ave, NYC

Toronto really needs some architecture like this to make it a true international city.  This is the entrance to an Apple Store in New York City which is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In the middle of the cube, there's a spiral staircase winding around a cylindrical elevator, by which you descend into the basement store.

Take that, Louvre Pyramid escalators! I like the simplicity of the cube, but considering Apple's design aesthetic, I wonder if they even considered rounding the edges.
