London-based photo studio Hufton + Crow has unveiled new photos of One Thousand Museum Tower in downtown Miami by Zaha Hadid Architects.
The residential skyscraper completed last year is located in Miami’s Biscayne Bay. It is one of the last projects by British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid before she died in Florida in 2016.
Nick Hufton and Al Crow, co-founders of Hoof tone + crow, shot the 62-story project from the waterfront, a nearby park, and its busy street entrance, and shot indoors.
The pictures show the meandering facade of the skyscraper, which consists of 1,000 pieces of lightweight glass fiber reinforced concrete.
The reinforced concrete elements frame numerous windows and terraces, while the bulbous base of the building has perforated walls that hide a parking garage.
“Reading from top to bottom as a continuous frame, when the tower rises to meet at the corners, the columns fan out at the base. They form a rigid tube that can withstand Miami’s demanding wind loads curved supports ensure hurricane-resistant diagonal brackets. ” said Zaha Hadid Architects.
The project, called One Thousand Museum, is 216 meters high and is flanked by other similar high buildings.
There are a total of eighty-three apartments within the apartment tower. There are four townhouse style houses, 70 half-floor apartments, eight duplex penthouses and a penthouse.
On the top floor of the skyscraper is an indoor pool with a textured, white, vaulted ceiling that reveals Hufton + Crow.
A smaller outdoor pool and garden are located on the parking garage and above the lobby.
The One Thousand Museum takes its name from Museum Park, which is across the street on Biscayne Boulevard.
“The 12-hectare park was redeveloped as one of the most important public areas in downtown Miami in 2013 and includes the city’s new art and science museums,” said Zaha Hadid Architects.
The Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) in Miami moved to the park in 2013 and was designed by the Swiss company Herzog & de Meuron.
Zaha Hadid unveiled the design for the One Thousand Museum in 2013 and is similar to Hadid’s 520 West 28th building in New York City, which also has curvilinear details.
Hufton + Crow has taken on further projects from Zaha Hadid Architects, including the honeycomb-like oil research center in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Other architectural projects by the British photo studio include Bangkok’s pixelated MahaNakhon tower by Ole Scheerer, a bridge in Italy by Richard Meier and the mountain village of Huangshan by MAD near Lake Taiping in China.
