Miami’s 62-storey residential tower continues Zaha Hadid Architects’ research into high-rise construction that defines a fluid architectural expression consistent with the engineering for the entire height of a structure…

Arrestingly stationed in the redeveloped 30-acre Museum Park area in Miami, with panoramic views across Biscayne Bay, One Thousand Museum is a 62-storey residential tower, the concrete exoskeleton of which structures its perimeter in a web of flowing lines that integrates lateral bracing with structural support.

Reading from top to bottom as one continuous frame, columns at its base fan out as the tower rises to meet at the corners, forming a rigid tube highly resistant to Miami’s demanding wind loads; its curved supports creating hurricane resistant diagonal bracketing.
 “The design expresses a fluidity that is both structural and architectural,” explains Zaha Hadid Architects’ project director Chris Lepine. “The structure gets thicker and thinner as required, bringing a continuity between the architecture and engineering.”

The building incorporates glass fibre reinforced concrete formwork which remains in place as construction progresses up the tower. This permanent concrete formwork also provides the architectural finish that requires minimal maintenance. Behind the exoskeleton, the faceted, crystal-like façade contrasts with the solidity of the structure.

With its frame at the perimeter, the tower’s interior floor plates are almost column free; the exoskeleton’s curvature creating slightly different plans on each floor. On the lower floors, terraces cantilever from the corners, while on the upper floors, the terraces are incorporated behind the structure.

The top floors of the tower feature an aquatic centre, lounge and event space. Landscaped gardens, terraces and pools are located above the lobby and residents’ parking.

Collaborating with DeSimone Consulting Engineers, Plaza Construction and ODP Architects, the tower’s external structure brings a continuity between its engineering and architecture, defining generous living areas uninterrupted by internal columns with fantastic views over Biscayne Bay.
