Jean Nouvel, the Pritzker Prize-winning architect, considered Miami’s climate and took steps to reduce the carbon footprint of the building when he designed Monad Terrace, his first project in Miami’s South Beach. The project features 59 luxury condominium residences, including a glamorous $7.1 million penthouse. Monad Terrace, which is developed by JDS Development Group, is designed to sit entirely above the flood plain and features a honeycomb screen integrated into the façade’s glass to reflect sunlight away from the building. The vertical gardens attached to the private terraces and patios help provide a natural climate, clean air and shade. Construction of Monad Terrace is well underway and scheduled to be completed by late 2019.
