Architectural it-boy and crush of many Bjarke Ingels was on a rampage of glory through Miami and Fort Lauderdale this week, making appearances for all three of his South Florida projects, three nights in a row. Each party was a hot ticket and more elaborate than the one before it. Monday night he gave an enthralling presentation of his architectural portfolio at the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art, followed by a presentation of his plans for the Marina Lofts apartments. Tuesday he opened the Portman-CMC Miami Beach Convention Center team's new showroom on Lincoln Lane North.
The fun fest culminated last night at the spectacularly fun groundbreaking ceremony for his Grove at Grand Bay project, that pair of majestically twisting condo towers. As construction ceremoniously began, it was noted that if everything stayed on schedule, this project would be his first completed work in all the Americas, north and south.
