Bjarke Ingels Designs New Florida Building, Tears it in Half

New, 3 comments

By this point, young Danish architect Bjarke Ingels has charmed just about everyone with every tool at his disposal: the denizens of New York with a jagged white pyramid rising from 57th Street, people who want to bike straight up to their 10th-floor apartment in Copenhagen. Now the industry's it-boy turns his attention to South Florida—where a pair of twisty condo towers are already planned for Miami—and unveils Marina Lofts, a 1,072-unit rental complex in Fort Lauderdale. While the renderings show what appears to be one giant corrugated building torn to bloody bits, Marina Lofts—if it's ever built, that is, as it needs $250M in funding at the moment—will consist of two 36-story buildings and one 25-story building, each with a mix of residences and retail space. Curbed Miami has a closer look.
