Most Beautiful/Ugliest Apple Stores

Which Apple Stores do you find to be the best-designed, and which ones do you consider to be blah and bland?

The one near my appartment in Montreal is considered to be one of the best designed.

I'm partial to my local store, Manhasset, Long Island, NY. You may know it as the store where the idiot walked into the glass door.

I personally do not like the all glass one. I'm sure the engineering is top notch and its unique, but its ugly.

The mall stores are hideous compared to freestanding stores.

Convent Gardens looks beautiful.

For NY, I'd say 5th Avenue. Not a fan of the others (while I appreciate that they kept the architecture of Grand Central intact (as mandated)), when that store is mobbed it's awful navigating through.

The Apple Stores found in Amsterdam, Fifth Avenue, Opéra Store (Paris), Covent Garden, and Barcelona Passeig de Gracia are stunning. Beautiful architecture. I wish we had an Apple Store here

Funny thing is, I've been to London and Paris several times but have never visited the Apple Stores in my post. I've just seen a lot of pictures and video tours. I love looking at the architectural designs of Apple Stores from around the world. They're very unique and impressive. So far the ones I've mentioned in my posts are the best I've seen (on the Internet).

All the ones I've been into have been mall stores. The closest one is the one at Montgomery Mall



It's small but what really gets me is the smell. Everytime I go in there the air is musty and just foul. As such, I usually wind up going to the one in Tysons Corner, VA instead. Little bigger and the air doesn't smell as foul
