1111 Lincoln Road by Herzog & de Meuron, Miami, USA

Herzog & de Meuron have produced not a new cultural behemoth but a strange sculptural structure, reviving the idea of the car park as a figure in the city.

Called 1111 Lincoln Road, this building incorporates 300 parking spaces. The recently- opened car park in Miami is designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron.

Envisioned by developer Robert Wennett and designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the multistorey carpark is part of the 1111 Lincoln Road development. Robert Wennett, has used Miami Beach’s parking shortage to smuggle in a layer of retail for which he otherwise would have struggled to get permission. Boutiques and bookshops at ground level establish a pattern of (upmarket) retail for (the now mid-market) Lincoln, while four condos on a new street at the side help with profits, leaving Wennett’s own penthouse and a restaurant to occupy the top floor. There is even a shop halfway up the ramps, isolated and intriguing.
