Miami has been changing a lot over this last decade, turning into a rich cultural city. Events such as Art Basel Miami Beach (the most important art event in the US) and buildings by international architects are part of this ongoing change.

One of these new projects in the city is 1111 Lincoln Road, a development envisioned by Robert Wennett and materialized by swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron.

This mixed use project is currently being built at the corner of Alton and Lincoln, one of the most active pedestrian areas in the city, and it will include residences, retail spaces and parking. Parking takes a central space in this building, with one of the best views I have ever seen on a parking space.

Jacques Herzog stated that this builing will reinterpret the essence of Tropical Modernism, and somehow it reminds me of the modern movement in Brazil, with huge structures providing shade, while containing smaller enclosing elements. The slabs stand over a set of irregular columns, giving a sense of a precarious equilibrium. This columns also cast different shadows, giving more character to the facade.

I´m very interested on seeing how this project ends up, and how this can affect (in a positive way) the extension of the Miami Art Museum, another project by Herzog & de Meuron for the city.

Photographer Paul Clemence shared with us some photos of this project during construction, on which you can see more about the expressive concrete structure.

More renderings and the construction photos after the break.
