Text description provided by the architects. We saw this project during its design and construction phase and now, thanks to photographer Nelson Garrido, we present you 1111 Lincoln Road by Herzog & de Meuron completed.

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 it somehow reminds me of the modern movement in Brazil, with raw structures providing shade, while containing smaller enclosing sub-elements. The slabs stand over a set of irregular columns, giving a sense of a precarious equilibrium. These columns also cast different shadows, giving more character to the facade.

But there are more references to Brazil's modernism: interior courtyards by landscape architect Raymond Jungles, follower of  Roberto Burle Marx (renowned figure of the modern movement in Brazil).

The project, developed by Robert Wennett, includes 300 parking spots, the building includes eleven shops and three restaurants at ground level, with further shopping on the fifth floor, another restaurant on the roof, and luxury residences.
