miami architecture: zaha hadid, herzog & de meuron, and OMA make waves in florida

 

over the past few years, miami has emerged as an epicenter for architecture and design. some of the field’s biggest names — including zaha hadid architects, OMA, herzog de meuron, and renzo piano — are currently working on projects in the region, many of which are nearing completion. with miami art week and design miami just around the corner, we take a closer look at some of the schemes that are making waves in sunny south florida.

park grove is a collection of three residential towers designed by rem koolhaas and developed by terra and the related group. the project forms OMA’s first commercial residential undertaking in the united states, and is characterized by faceted concrete columns that function as the tower’s exoskeleton. the design references the form of florida’s barrier islands, with undulating façades that promote ventilation and daylight. the project broke ground in 2015 and is set for completion in 2018.

designed by rene gonzalez, louver house offers 12 spacious residences in the historic ‘south of fifth street’ neighborhood of miami beach. responding to its tropical beachfront setting, the three-storey building seeks to reinterpret the surrounding historical design typologies in its layout and scale. vernacular details such as an emphasis on horizontality and art deco ‘eyebrows’ are expressed and translated at the building’s edges with planters, as well as with the terrace balconies’ slab edges.

developed by melo group, ‘aria on the bay’ is a 53-storey luxury tower in downtown miami. designed by arquitectonica, aria’s opera-inspired name serves as a nod to its downtown location in the burgeoning arts and entertainment district surrounded by cultural arts venues. the glass structure’s smooth architectural design and scalloped façade was influenced by the shapes of the wave crests in biscayne bay, combined with a series of curving balconies found in some of the world’s greatest opera houses. construction is now underway and slated for delivery in early 2018.
