Noticed that when i was there the twinkles are not bright enough.I think Aurora Tower is the most eye catching at night in terms of exterior lighting.

Oh that ugly building that completely destroys the whole Pudong nightscape. SWFC's lighting scheme is unique, and it's not the brightest building that wins the night.

I'm talking about the most eye catching not the best lighting. When you look at the skyline Aurora draws peoples attention because of that big media screen.

It's too much a distraction, since it is so bright it's hard to see amidst the changing lights. Not sure how effective that scheme is at all.

They're good, but they're no Jin Mao (or SWFC).

Not a big fan of the Apple entrance though .. just a copy and paste from their other stores, and nothing unique at all.

Well i guess they are trying to make it a standard design so that its stores will be reconised by people who come from different countries. I think Gucci is trying to do the same too.

Jin Mao is my second favourite in Shanghai!! SWFC is'nt as iconic though. I feel its design is a bit on the safe side.

All Apple products have the same most fundamental design, from the new iPhone to the Apple TV. So they might as well have similar stores.
