BIG unveils twisting towers in Miami
The project will be finished in 2014
BIG has unveiled two new residential towers at the Coconut Grove Waterfront in Miami, USA.
The Grove at Grand Bay will be located on the former site of the Grand Bay Hotel. The two 20-storey towers will have nearly 100 luxury apartments showcasing panoramic views across the coastline.
The twisting facade of the towers will consist of gardens, canopied neighbourhoods and balconies.
Developed by Terra Group, construction is due to start at the beginning of next year, with completion aimed for the end of 2014.
Bjarke Ingels, founding partner at BIG said: “Miami has developed a contemporary condominium vernacular that combines brise soleil style balcony shading with floor-to-ceiling windows in order to best enjoy the panoramic water views of the area. We propose to elaborate on these indigenous elements and continue the evolution of the local condominium architecture.”
