The most iconic skylines in the world have brightly and often colorfully illuminated buildings. With Miami’s skyline now booming more than ever before, illuminated structures will play a huge role in defining the skyline in the imagination of observers.
The latest illumination contribution comes from 50 Biscayne. Its crown is neon, bright, colorful, and noticeable–taking advantage of its conspicuous location. The rest of Biscayne Boulevard’s towers are under construction and remain dark silhouettes at night. I suspect that there will be a serious illumination trend accompanying the completion of these structures, and if so, then it will be impacting.
