Arquitectonica. Icon Brickell Tower

map: 501 Brickell Av. Miami, Florida

Local Miami studio Arquitectonica, in collaboration with Yoo by Phillipe Starck, are responsible for the design given to this 3-tower mixed use complex just a bridge-cross from downtown and on Biscayne Bay's waterfront.
The whole composition consisting on distinctive outlined blocks in an irregular sequence, added to the use of dark glassed windows is what I call creative resolution for a high rise building. 

 That's why the first time I saw the building from the bridge that connects Key Biscayne to the land I wondered who could have designed such a thing. An interesting mass that changed Miami's skyline, as you can see in my pictures below (taken during construction in May 2008). The Icon is far to the left, with cranes still on the rooftop.
