With Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum on the cusp of topping off in downtown Miami — expected in December — we thought it’d be cool to take a deeper look at the design of the highly anticipated development.

Hadid’s first and final residential tower in the Western Hemisphere, the 62-story tower is a fascinating project. Its exoskeleton is comprised of 5,000 pieces of lightweight concrete reinforced with glass fiber imported from Dubai. You can get a feel for the design process in the sketches down below.

Amenities include a sun bathing deck; an aquatic center with an infinity-edge indoor pool; a spa; a private heilpad; a sky lounge; and a fitness center.

Zaha Hadid Architects’ stunning King Abdullah Petroleum Studies and Research Centre (KAPSARC) also recently opened its doors in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The full set of sketches for One Thousand Museum can be observed below, beginning with several images of the exoskeleton. You can also check out the illustrious full-floor residence over here.
