"JDS, one of New York's best luxury residential developers, partners with Atelliers Jean Nouvel to build Monad Terrace. The architect was the winner of the 2008 Pritzker Prize. The project is one of the newest in Miami."

"Simon Koster and Michael Stern of JDS Development Group invited architect Jean Nouvel to create a visionary residential building — Monad Terrace — on the lagoon in Miami Beach. “With him, no two buildings are ever the same; Jean inspects the canvas before applying anything to it. We believe that such a collaborative process is key to sustainable design around the world,” says Koster."

"In what Nouvel calls "the reflection machine," high-tech honeycomb screens precisely calibrate views and seclusion, reflecting pools bounce dappled light deep into living spaces and the signature water garden draws the sparkling bay into the heart of the property."

“Landscape is an architectural material. It is part of the architecture,” Nouvel says, shrugging, as if this was patently obvious. At 71, he’s immediately recognizable: with brooding eyebrows beneath a shining dome, he wears his pride as boldly as he does his jet-black, film noir overcoat."

"Located off Monad Terrace and West Avenue in Miami Beach, directly south of the Waverly (14th Street), the luxury waterfront development is unique in that it was designed with Climate Change and rising sea levels at the forefront, as we learned in the announcement last February."

"Jean Nouvel needs little introduction. The 71-year-old Pritzker Prize laureate, whose work ranges fromthe Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris toBarcelona’s Torre Agbartower, is widely regarded as one of the great living architects. Though he has built projects around the world,the architect recentlybroke ground on his first in Miami Beach, a cityexperiencing significant economic and cultural growth."

"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)."

"French architect Jean Nouvel's first residential project in Florida is raised over 11 feet above sea level to address the growing risk of flooding in Miami Beach."

"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."

"At Design Miami/ 2016, French architect Jean Nouvel has revealed more information about his first project in Miami — Monad Terrace. 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."

"Monad Terrace is arrayed across two long but relatively low-slung glass volumes. At the center of the site, Nouvel has included a naturally filtered lagoon with lush, native plantings."

"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."

"Curbed got an exclusive first peek at the 95-page condo filing for the project, which is being developed by JDS and designed by the French starchitect Nouvel and Kobi Karp Architecture and Interior Design in Miami. The photos show a glassy building surrounded by water with a sheet of leaves down one side."
