Palm Court Façade for Miami Design District

His design for the façade of the mixed-use retail building located in the neighborhood’s Palm Court is one of the cornerstones of the pedestrian-centric area and is inspired by the flowing movement of waterfalls and Miami’s tempestuous rainsqualls.

One of today’s most forward thinking international architects, Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto is known for delicate, light structures and permeable enclosures. Inspired by organic eco-systems, such as forests, nests and caves, Fujimoto’s signature creations exhibit a vibrant interplay between nature and architecture, blending the internal and external.

His design for the façade of the mixed-use retail building located in the neighborhood’s Palm Court is one of the cornerstones of the pedestrian-centric area and is inspired by the flowing movement of waterfalls and Miami’s tempestuous rainsqualls. The two-story structure features an elongated series of glass fins extending from the rooftop down to the open courtyard creating a dynamic visual spectacle and alluding to the prevalent aquatic nature of the city. Among Fujimoto’s projects in Japan are the Final Wooden House, T House and House N– in which one almost transparent volume is nested inside another – the Musashino Art Museum and the Library at Musashino Art University. In 2013, Fujimoto was selected to design the Serpentine Gallery pavilion in London, one of the world’s most ambitious architectural commissions.
