Apple's Urban Design Not As Popular As Its Computer Design
Columnist John King explains his disappointment in the new downtown San Francisco Apple store. "The computer chain that for years urged us to "think different" now imposes order from above: its outposts are interchangeable by design, with details repeated from store to store." He suggests that dealmaking with Willie Brown's city hall has allowed Apple to tarnish a historic district and destroy the existing sense of place. How much should a store change to fit in?
