the huge roof on the top prevents direct sunlight and shelters the store and people under it from wind and rain. upon entering the store, accessories are displayed on the surface around the central illuminated pillar, and PCS and monitors are placed on a circular display table on the outer ring of the pillar, just like the scene that gears are falling down from the floating UFO.UFO-shaped roof tops glazed 'alienware pop-up store' in china
