The mixed use project by Herzog & de Meuron represents a return of Brutalism to south Florida. The new parking garage, retail and residential addition to the existing Suntrust bank is a composition of similar opposites. The original bank building is a brutalist building in every sense. It is big, bulky, grey and dark. The addition is open, light and airy. However they are both proudly concrete buildings. Instead of another Art Deco imposter, Herzog & de neuron created something truly unique and at the same time tied to what is means to be in Miami Beach.
