"Its “Reflection Machine,” a giant lagoon of sorts at the heart of the complex, is designed to invite the rising waters of Biscayne Bay and is capable of withstanding the heavy flooding that typically devours waterfront developments on West Avenue. The project will be comprised of 59 residences, ranging from two to five bedrooms and starting at $1.7 million."

FORBES

"The USA is getting its über Pritzker on. Foreign-born Pritzker Prize-winning starchitects are waving their magic wands over American condominiums, hotels, and mixed-use complexes—creating sleek towers and contemporary living spaces that are redefining urban luxury living for millionaires and billionaires (especially in New York and Miami)."

CULTURED

"Jean Nouvel is often described as an architect without a signature style. His buildings can be decidedly eccentric, whether robustly theatrical or impressionistic and lyrical. Surveying the many notable projects the Pritzker Prize winner has completed over his nearly five-decade career—a dizzying array of cultural buildings, office towers, residential high-rises, hotels and wineries—it is almost hard to believe they were all designed by the same hand."

DESIGN BOOM

Located on the west side of Miami Beach, overlooking Biscayne Bay and downtown, the scheme sees 59 individually designed waterfront residences positioned around a man-made lagoon. Dubbed ‘the reflection machine’, the project provides brilliant light, while private outdoor space is sheltered by climbing gardens."

MIAMI HERALD

"The enlightened architect can offer new visions and allegories, even if they are only small parts of an evolving narrative — what might be deemed “urban poetics.” But sometimes, the urban geographer is obliged to dig deeper and reveal the prevailing threads of invention, no matter how arbitrary they may seem on first impression."
