Introducing The Curbed Miami Starchitecture Heatmap

View as Map

Here ye, here ye, we introduce the Curbed Miami's Starchitecture Heatmap, a map of the great new architecture by famous architects coming to Miami in the near future. Commissions by famous architects are flooding Miami, quickly raising the bar for the calibre of architecture expected when constructing something new in our fair city. Think your luxury condo tower will be anything special without an outstanding design? Think again!

Should we have included something that perchance has been overlooked? Do drop us a line. At any rate, check out the map, after the jump.

6. One Ocean

Copy Link
1 Collins Ave
Miami Beach, FL 33139

Miami Beach, FL 33139

321 Ocean, by starchitect Enrique Norten, is just a few blocks up Ocean Drive by Norten's other building-to-be One Ocean, but the difference between the two is night and day. Whereas One Ocean is afflury with curves, 321 is just about as boxy as they get, a celebration of rectilinearity.

Copy Link
