Architecture: One Thousand Museum Sales Center by Zaha Hadid
Boulevard center, Miami
The sales center for the One Thousand Museum building in Miami, designed by Zaha Hadid, has been completed. Iraqe born Hadid, a rare example of a prolific female architect in a male-dominated industry, designed the 1040 Biscayne Boulevard center, which includes a spinning hologram of the tower, angular furniture from Hadid’s own line and high-definition video screens. It reminds some observers of the set of a futuristic science-fiction film and it’s a safe bet that the finished product will not resemble anything else in the market.
Zaha Hadid says “The exoskeleton is the key feature of the design, a fusion of architectural and structural expression. The flow lines of the exoskeleton accentuate the design and connect at critical nodes for structural stability.” The building’s design is also very specific to its Miami location, One Thousand Museum’s location in Downtown on Biscayne Boulevard is also a unique placement as this area is increasingly becoming more central and appealing to an ultra luxury buyer.
Zaha Hadid is a visionary. The buildings she designs not only make headlines worldwide, but also garner critical acclaim and promise to be in history books for generations to come.”
