Retrospect: Ten Museum Park to the Third Power

Let’s put on our  hindsight 20/20 goggles and look at three interesting buildings that never came to reality. Chad Oppenheim’s firm is the architect of these designs:


Ice 2, then element, then nothing.

Ten Museum would’ve had a twin in Element. An almost replica of the Parkwest tower, this one was originally called Ice 2–phase II of its name sake which also never got built and looked just like it but smaller. It was re-branded as Element in an attempt to lift it off the ground but failed.


Here was a unique one. It was Ten Museum Park inside of a photovoltaic porthole-like envelope with wind turbines at the crown. This LEED showpiece would’ve graced the skyline north of the I195 in the design district.


Oppenheim went for a more dynamic approach with Lynx. It’s Ten Museum Park but as a multiple tiered cluster. Today, all we’re left with is this rendering and the wretched vast parking lot west of the Miami Tower.

Flash forward to the present and Oppenheim is up to something new (or old?)
