Arquitectonica, in collaboration with Jean-Louis Deniot and Two Roads Development, has released the design for 'Elysee Residences', a 57-story high-rise development that will become the tallest structure in Miami’s Edgewater District.

Inspire by Modernist aesthetics, Elysee’s is a luxury condominium where the floor plan expands as it grows higher, “creating a multi-tiered exterior structure.” In this sense, the tower is meant to become three vertical neighborhoods.

Elysee will house 100 half- and full-floor units ranging from three to five bedrooms, all with direct water views.

Construction on the project is expected to begin in the coming months with a completion date in 2018.

The way this project is presented is part of a worrisome trend. A slightly bigger floor plan --each 3rd of the way up-- doesn't make or break any kind of "neighborhood." In fact, it would be hard to know the difference when inside. What happens below the text tiered tower might be the key, but with no information and just one exterior rendering, we are left wondering. Ever since Arquitectonica built a magazine-ready project with that big loud hole, palm trees and all, folks have been dazzled. Unfortunately, this article is nothing but real estate PR, a total let-down.

This is a classic example of just because we can do something doesn't mean we should. I wish that more architects would ask themselves the question when reviewing design options, "If all buildings in the city looked like this, what sort of city would it be?" and if the answer is bizarro world, then a rethink is in order. Just a means of maintaining some sanity and respect for the human experience.

I also despise the justification, "In this sense, the tower is meant to become three vertical neighborhoods." Bull. People on the 27th floor won't have any awareness of people on the 22nd floor and so on, other than meetings outside of their "tier" - elevator, lobby, etc. These places are the public common in the residential tower - the form of the actual residences is irrelevant.
