Zaha Hadid, one of the most revered architects of our time is designing a condo tower at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard, her first skyscraper in the western hemisphere.
The One Thousand Museum luxury condominium, a skyscraper set to be constructed on Miami’s Biscayne Boulevard, is certainly a structure with a tall order of expectations to fulfill.
The tower’s designs will be unveiled early next year and will be the “most iconic tower ever to be built in Miami”. It has been pegged as nothing short of Miami’s future, its bolt to the forefront of the world’s metropolitan arenas.
The building will fill a gap in the section of the “Biscayne Wall” of condo towers across from Museum Park. The site is currently occupied by a BP Station, which Curbed Miami had theorized months ago might soon be built upon.
Hadid is known for fluid and undulating lines and unabashed futuristic designs. Her designs have included the aquatic center at the London Olympics and special edition motor yachts. She heads up her own 350 person design firm Zaha Hadid Architects in London and, in 2008, was ranked 69th on Forbes list of “The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women.”
