World’s biggest smart phone company stupidly employs architects who design it’s flagship Chicago store with a eco-friendly carbon fiber roof that could kill people.
The flaw is so bad it endangers the lives of those who go under it in winter due to precipitation in the form of flakes of crystalline water ice or PITFOFOCWI for short.
“London-based architects Foster + Partners may have forgotten to consider the snow and ice that envelops Chicago during winter. The Apple Store’s ultra-thin roof was not fitted with any gutters to catch water, so melting snow is now forming icicles and sliding off to possibly fall on pedestrians below.”
