I am not sure where Mint topped out, but many people agree that it fell short of its original 631 feet height specification. It was supposed to be taller than Bank of America which is 625 feet, but it does not look that tall.

I certainly would have preferred it be one taller tower than it is, but I also feel that this is a design that begs to be taller. It was a waste of the design to not make this building over 150m.

It is amazing! We have powerful developers still moving forward even in this economic climate!

As of now you can see that I'm reorganising this thread. It defenitely needs a make-over because a lot of projects are finished last year. Im trying to get this ready in a few days but I have exams as well, which are more important to me at the moment.

Cheers

Architecture Review

Matching Architecture to the Art in a New Miami Museum





By ROBIN POGREBIN
November 18, 2009
nytimes.com

Why is it so hard to design a great contemporary-art museum?

This question has been bothering art lovers for a while. One institution after another has embarked on vast new building projects over the last decade, and in nearly every case the museum and its architects struggled to figure out the right balance between architectural expression and the need to showcase art. Yet after all this time and all those buildings, the question is still being asked.

No architects have been more deeply or visibly embroiled in this struggle than the Swiss team of Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron. Since the 2001 opening of their Tate Modern — a building that instantly became the emblem of London’s rise as an art world capital — they have designed more than half a dozen art museums, each one a provocative reworking of the conventional formula.

Much of this work paid off. Their Schaulager in Basel, Switzerland, a mixture of galleries and art storage spaces that opened in 2003, is considered by many to be one of the most appealingly intimate places to look at art built in recent memory. But other designs, like the 2005 expansion of the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, got decidedly mixed reviews in the art world, with some critics arguing that too much of the architects’ personalities had seeped into the galleries. And in retrospect the Tate Modern, with its huge public spaces and huger crowds, may function better as a spectacle than an art space.

The team’s recently unveiled design for the Miami Art Museum is likely to ignite the debate all over again. Some architects no doubt will snipe that it looks too safe, an insult in design circles, as if Mr. Herzog and Mr. de Meuron were inspired by a fear of inciting yet more art world ire. On a breathtaking site overlooking Biscayne Bay, its boxy exterior, surrounded by slim 50-foot columns and capped by a vast flat roof, it could even be momentarily confused with 1960s-era performing arts developments like the Kennedy Center.

But the design for the Miami Art Museum is not a regurgitation of outmoded historical forms. Instead it breaks those forms apart and then pieces them back together to create something wholly new. It’s as if the architects had stepped back to contemplate the long arc of museum designs — including their own — before moving forward again along the evolutionary chain.

The $130 million building project has been overseen by Terry Riley, a former head of the Museum of Modern Art’s department of architecture and design who helped plan that museum’s expansion, and who was the Miami museum’s director until his resignation last month. (Mr. Riley is returning to his architectural practice, but he will continue to lead the Miami project as a consultant. Financing comes largely from a $100 million local bond issue. (The museum is still raising money for an endowment to help pay for operating expenses and acquisitions.)





The museum is to face Biscayne Bay to the east and a vast public park, scheduled to begin construction next year, to the south. It is intended to be part of a cultural development that also includes a planned Science Museum by Grimshaw Architects.

Mr. Herzog and Mr. de Meuron’s design has strong connections to Classical and modern precedents. It is part of a lineage that reaches back past postwar performing arts centers to Mies van der Rohe’s New National Gallery and Karl Friedrich Schinkel’s neo-Classical Altes Museum, all the way to the Parthenon.

The architects reinforce the sense of grandeur by placing their building up on a concrete platform, as if to stress art’s elevated status. A grand staircase — nearly the entire 180-foot width of the platform — connects it to the waterfront: something like the grand staircase in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but with a better view. A smaller stair connects to the park.

The first sign that something unexpected is going on here is a surprising feeling of weightlessness. The base, which would typically be a heavy solid platform, is conceived as a thin concrete slab that seems to hover several feet above the ground. Resting on top of it, the lobby, restaurant, auditorium and galleries are broken down into a cluster of boxlike forms, some of them weighing down the core of the composition; others cantilevering out over the deck.

Seen from a distance the museum will look like it is levitating, the various parts about to float off in different directions. Only the vast trellislike roof — and the columns that support it — seems to hold everything in place. Gardens and light wells are set into the platform deck. Hanging gardens, some as long as 40 feet, are suspended from the roof, giving the impression that the building is being swallowed up by its natural surroundings. (The scene might bring to mind a post-apocalyptic science fiction fantasy.)

The idea is to maintain art’s place on the pedestal of high culture while allowing for a more mixed experience. Yet the instability of some of the forms also suggests a more ambivalent view of art’s place in the world — one that acknowledges that for more than a century that pedestal has been increasingly wobbly as the boundaries between art, fashion and fame have blurred.

Any news on any other Miami projects or construction? Sad to see so few projects are posted here, even though MIA has the country's third biggest skyline and has experienced a construction boom these past years!!!

As far as I know all the projects posted in this thread are completed or on hold. After 2007 the construction boom kinda stopped. Feel free to add any new projects if you know where to find them on the internet.
