Miami Skyline welcomes Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum

Zaha Hadid’s legacy continues with a curving structural “exoskeleton” that snakes in front of glass facades, One Thousand Museum joins a row of towers opposite Museum Park in Downtown Miami, Florida.

Its developers have marked the topping out ceremony by releasing a series of updated renderings showing its amenities, also designed byHadid, to offer a preview of life for future residents. Among the facilities will be a swimming pool at top of the building, to be covered by a curving, faceted metal ceiling that will reflect the water.

The double-height space is occupied by the pool on one side and a seating area on the other – both with large expanses of glazing that offers views across the city and ocean. There will also be a bar for residents will be topped by a similar metallic canopy design. Other curvaceous forms in the project that are typical of Hadid’s style include a bent roof above the gymnasium, which appears to be made from wood.

Comprising 5,000 pieces of lightweight glass-fiber-reinforced concrete, the building’s exterior formwork is a visible feature of many of the communal areas, covering the windows of the gym and sheltering the adjoining terrace. There will also be sunbathing areas beside the outdoor pool, raised on a podium that will contain parking, and public restaurants and retail.
