Entry Description

Miami River is a Special Area plan creating a dense, urban area at the juncture of the river and I-95. The 10-acre site is designed by Kobi Karp to activate its surroundings by integrating a mixed-use program in four towers with improved public and street-level areas. On the lower levels the architecture is curvilinear and transparent. The landscape is brought into the building with planters recessed into the architecture on multiple levels. The pedestal façade is a combination of glass, metal and a series of planter systems from levels 2 to 8.
