Video: Kinetic Facade Installed At 830 Brickell Office Tower

A kinetic façade that captures Miami’s breeze is now being installed at the under-construction 830 Brickell office tower, a new video shows.

The video, posted Friday to the Brickell Living Facebook group, shows installation underway, with the portions already installed flapping in the wind.

In addition to masking the parking and providing pleasing aesthetics, the aluminum panels allow air to flow through and ventilate the building, permit visibility from the inside, and deflect Solar Heat Gain, according to the manufacturer.

830 Brickell topped off in June as the second tallest office tower in Miami, with completion scheduled for later this year.

Only thing I like better than more parking is parking with a kinetic facade.

I saw it in person, looks amazing. But my first thought was, these thing will be Chinese stars in Category 5 winds.

They do extensive environmental testing at high wind speeds and adjust the engineering accordingly

Brickell has a lot more to worry about than that if a hurricane of that scale blows through. Welcome to Atlantis

I would rather try to dodge Chinese stars in category 5 winds than try to dodge the blown off roof from your house in them.

So you would rather be slashed than a tile they would probably just crack?

Quick….quick….quick….alert the engineers, the manufacturers, and the Building inspectors about your thoughts and ideas.

Those people who do this stuff for a living probably did not think this through! You have to save them!!! Quick!

When code requires parking pedestals to be concealed, this should be how to conceal it instead of queasy murals and/or randomly placed sheet metal.

It’s beautiful but what will they do with big ugly concrete wall facing SLS Lux once beautiful east-facing side condos? Hope it’s not going to be just paint. Ima gine waking up and looking at concrete wall… for your 900K invested

Kinetic projectile in the next major hurricane

I suppose it didn’t even occur to you that the many architects, engineers, consultants and contractors involved in this project didn’t even consider, even for one fleeting moment, how the effects of a category 5 hurricane would impact not only the structure itself but the kinetic facade of the podium?

Meanwhile, he was guaranteed that he’ll be “as snug as a bug in a rug” where he lives during the next major hurricane.
