Famed Architect To Bring Her Designs To SoBe « CBS Miami.

It’s not entirely new news that Zaha Hadid is building a parking garage here in Miami(Beach), but the above link has an interview with CBS Miami Shannon Hori regarding the structure.  Here’s an excerpt from the article,

“The idea was to create a dynamic movement. To use the idea of the movement of the car, which is circular, and then as it moves up, begins to shift, to give it more dynamics,” Hadid said.  But don’t expect Hadid to park there. She doesn’t have a license. She said she considers that her biggest failing in life.  Hadid, who now oversees a staff of 300, first started vacationing in Miami 10 years ago. She said she looks forward to having her own design in a city she loves.

With Hadid’s new garage proposal to match up against Herzog & deMeuron’s 1111, there are still plenty of Pritzker Prize winning architects that can still use Miami as the testing ground/guinea pig for automobile parking.  Who knows, maybe Jean Nouvel will get his shot next year.
