Video Of The Kinetic Facade Planned At 830 Brickell, Will Become Miami’s Second Tallest Office Tower

Miami’s 830 Brickell office tower will use a “kinetic facade” that flaps in the breeze, a newly released video shows.

Project representatives showed the video at a presentation before Miami’s Urban Development Review Board last month.

The facade will capture the breeze while masking a parking garage, according to architects for the project.

Architects also provided a link to the product specs. A parking garage at Boston’s airport uses the same system.

830 Brickell is under construction and will become Miami’s second tallest office tower upon completion.

“Try something different” That worked out so well for the FIU bridge.

Monotonous, looks like it can be anywhere. It lacks regionalism and passion. It’s a one trick pony.

Our company has worked with this manufacturer as they also make hurricane rated skylights and windows. They over engineer their products and they are top quality and very costly. With their knowledge of hurricane products I wouldn’t think it would be a problem, as it will still have to be tested .

Compared to what? Assorted sheet metal and/or a tacky mural seen on buildings only blocks away? Don’t forget about the giant hideous parking garage being built down the street, too.

Lip stick on a pig. still a giant parking garage at the base with no life visible until you get hundred feet in the air.

There many new lovely office options in Aventura. Only short drives to a whole host of strip malls, or the Aventura Mall.
I can assure you….you dont have to feel unsafe, feel stress, or feel uncontrollable anxiety each day thi king about hurricanes and debris.

Aventura office architects are smarter and more thorough than Adrian Smith. What has he ever done?

My thoughts exactly. Each tile will become a small missile flying 200mph if the rings that hold them break up. I hope there is a stringent code to adhere here.

Yep.. other than that people, you can just casually walk around in a hurricane or tropical storm.

They walk casually in Hong Kong, and other parts of Asia during a hurricane, or tropical storm. Haven’t you seen videos of people having there umbrellas blown away while going about the daily lives during a hurricane in that part of the world. Also, in Miami there are a few people around Brickell (and Miami) that have taken videos during a hurricane. Maybe you are one of them. Sheesshh…there are some really smart people in Miami!

Yeah man, who cares about the threat of being electrocuted because of some downed power lines, getting your brains knocked by some flying debris, the warnings to seek shelter or stay inside, warnings about going out on a boat, and by all means don’t ignore warnings about underestimating the power of hurricane force winds just because people “walk casually in Hong Kong, and other parts of Asia during a hurricane, or tropical storm.”

Anyone who thinks Polo makes sense would walk down a dark alley at night because he said it’s safe.

True that. Nothing worse than the stress of enduring a Cat3 or more. No electricity, no cellphone service, no gas, chaos in the markets with a ton of people grabbing cases of beer, the list goes on and on.
A native Miamian uses air miles and escapes.
No one will get hit by these projectiles but its does seem like a silly design idea for Miami.
