AD: This is What Miami’s Skyline Will Look Like in 2018

The curving balconies of Arquitectonica’s Auberge Miami will offer picturesque vistas of the Biscayne Bay and surrounding cityscape.

In the midst of a building boom, Miami is currently dotted with scaffolding-clad towers and soaring construction cranes. AD has the first glimpse of what the city’s skyline will look like in 2018, when work on many of the high-profile projects is set to be completed. Soon, the 60th-floor pool terrace of Arquitectonica’s upcoming luxury tower, Auberge Miami, will overlook some of the city’s most acclaimed architectural icons, both old and new. Residents of the tower will have direct views of the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts (completed in 2006 by César Pelli) and the Pérez Art Museum (a 2013 Herzog & de Meuron–designed gem); plus, they’ll be a stone’s throw from the American Airlines Arena, home of the Miami Heat.

Huge Japanese architecture firm Nikken Sekkei and Barcelona studio Pascual i Ausió Arquitectes have been selected to renovate the Camp Nou stadium, home of FC Barcelona.

Dubbed the New Camp Nou, the proposal from the two architecture firms will see significant alterations to the stadium in Barcelona, Spain, which was originally designed in 1957 by Spanish architect Francesc Mitjans Miró.

The triple-tier structure will remain, but the third tier will be extended and a roof covering more than 47,000 square metres will be added to make sure all seats are sheltered from the weather.

The capacity will be increased from 99,350 to 105,000. One of the main requirements of the brief was for all of the seats to have a good view of the pitch.
