two new images have been released of zaha hadid‘s first residential building design in the united states. the 60 storey luxury condominium, slated to galvanize the miami skyline by 2014. located along a major traffic artery, biscayne boulevard, the ‘one thousand museum’ is set to tower at 700+ feet and wear its structure on its skin. a sinuous exoskeleton is to characterize the building and hide protruding balconies.

 

the project proposes to add credibility to the city as a maturing international cosmopolitan center by using hadid’s unique formal vocabulary to create cultural capital. units are reported to be priced anywhere from 900 USD to 1400 USD per square foot, so about 4 million to upwards of 15 million USD per dwelling. duplex penthouses could be priced between 30 million USD to 50 million USD, catering to miami’s ultraluxury market.

  • symmetry+flexibility=flower.

  • Tower is GREAT. The base part is weird.

  • I’m surprised. It’s a LOT better than I expected from Hadid. Maybe she was forced to be restrained – in an elegant way – by the need to maximize volume within a strictly defined “envelope” allowed by the Zoning and Code regulations. I’d venture to say she’s a better architect when working within these tight parameters than when she has an open site and the supposed luxury of unlimited formal possibilities. This is a promising direction for her practice.

  • It is quite phallic, I mean… really phallic

  • The zaha design goes up. Always zaha, but more control and sense. Now zaha is architect most influence of world.
