1111 Lincoln Road,Miami Beach, Florida / project 2005-2008, realization 2008-2010 by Herzog De Meuron Architects.
A civic building about art, commerce and culture, with event spaces and transparency. This is not only a parking garage in miami beach, florida, but also an art center with exclusive shops. A beautiful concept with a strong architecture. A master piece of Herzog & De Meuron architects that i really love. The architect Jacques Herzog called this a building that’s all muscle, without clothes, like Miami Beach !
"A car park is a public facility, like a train station or an airport, where people change from one mode of transportation to another. Lincoln Road Mall is a very alive, urban experience, a pedestrian shopping street where small-scale restaurants and bars serve their customers day and night, all year round, under lush trees and stars. 1111 is a new place for people to leave their cars so they can hang out on Lincoln Road Mall, go see a movie or have a swim in the ocean. To create another standard parking structure on a retail base, with a façade that hides the ugliness of what is being stored inside, and a recessed penthouse on top would not have answered the urban requirements of this place. Seeing the potential of the project, Miami Beach authorities courageously approved more height on this corner, but not more FAR. The additional height granted is used for higher ceilings, more air, panoramic views and better looks at the structure." Herzog De Meuron
