This is a very attractive project. I would not have recognized it as a Norman Foster - he usually uses more glass. Reading that it was designed by a "starchitect" I would have guessed Zaha Hadid. Well, there you go.

That's one beautiful tower. And at the right place, too. Outright it says: Miami! Perfect.

I'm glad Foster & Partners finally start to think and act like that, as do other once egocentric "starchitects", taking into account a building's location and surroundings more, emphasizing vernacular accents and also adding something fresh and creative:
Quote:
The new Foster + Partners tower could set a new high-water mark for adaptation of historic buildings in the city. Wrapped almost entirely in broad, rounded, overhanging balconies that recall the verandas on cruise ships, the unfussy tower achieves a spare modernity while echoing its Deco — or more precisely, Streamline Moderne — predecessors as well as the deep balconies on the south side of the more-linear, mid-century Saxony.

We were trying to capture a new image for South Beach and reinvent it for future buildings,” said Brandon Haw, Foster’s New York-based senior partner responsible for North America. “We didn’t want to overshadow the Saxony. That was important to how we articulated the building.”

That totally is the way to go!

^ I completely agree this tower is the true Miami experience and takes luxury in Miami to a whole new level. The penthouse apartment is only 8,000 square feet and is selling for a whole 52,000,000 dollars! That has to be nearly 50 percent of the construction cost.
