Starchitect Jeanne Gang has just released fresh renderings of the residential tower she's planning for Miami's Design District. Gang, whose Aqua tower in Chicago (the country's tallest building designed by a woman) has given the Windy City a lot to brag about in recent years, will soon give Miami a breezy 14-story structure that guarantees panoramic views of Biscayne Bay for all 76 units within. The façade of irregular, rippling openings is supposed to produce shaded, yet open-air spaces that will, according to the architect, serve as a contemporary reinterpretation of a "Florida room." The building, scheduled to wrap construction in 2016, will feature retail spaces, a resident lounge, and a swimming pool on the ground level. Bonus: plans to integrate solar shading and rainwater collection.
