Arquitectonica in the Far East: Big Things Poppin’

Image: Zendai Forum, Shanghai

Miami-based Arquitectonica is known for having designed some of Miami’s most recognizable buildings. In the early 1980’s they designed, what were then, groundbreaking concepts for the Imperial, Atlantis, and the Palace on Brickell Avenue. Since then, they have gone on to design many more of Miami’s most notable buildings and established something of an architectural hegemony in the local market, but apparently, that was not enough. These local architectural old-schoolers have gone global, and in the Far East they’re doing it BIG.
