AE Interests: This 636 foot tall residential tower is oriented on the beaches of Miami and designed to respect and represent just that. The tower is oriented diagonally and shaped like a parallelogram (seen in photo 4) to allow the beach to have maximum sun exposure while the sun is to the western side of the building. The overall design of the building is praised for its open nature design giving the overall feeling of a “hotel at the beach,” rather than the presence of a “beach at the hotel,” that is present with other structures in the area that obstruct the natural beauty of the landscape.
