Ripply New Miami Tower Mirrors the Bay It Overlooks

New, 1 comment

Architecture is forever trying to capture movement within stasis. A new residential tower called Icon Bay in Miami, overlooking the Biscayne Bay, achieves this paradox with its rippled front façade mirroring the waves of the waters before it. Architectural firm Arquitectonica went for a sleek, concrete and glass form with balconies set in jagged rows, creating a sense of horizontal fluidity across the 43-story tower. Raised on pilotisand surrounded by landscaped gardens open to public, the 300-unit tower with museum-like lobbies is part of a bigger residential plan in the once-blighted neighborhood of Edgewater.
