Herzog & de Meuron - 1111 Lincoln Road

Herzog & de Meuron's recently finished a car park in Miami - it looks so amazing. I love the slight shifts in the floor plates, the varying floor heights, and the way that the columns change in shape and size as they progress through the structure. 1111 Lincoln Road is actually a mixed use building with shops and restaurants on the ground level, more shopping on the fifth floor, and a restaurant on the roof. There also seems to be a residential component, although I'm not sure where exactly that part is - maybe it's the white building next door that is connected via some walkways? H&dM describe 1111 Lincoln Road as "all muscle without cloth"...
