These sketches illustrate the design process and evolution of Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum 

Currently under construction, the One Thousand Museum in Miami USA was Zaha Hadid’s first and final residential skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere. These computer drawings show the initial steps of designing the building, which is an impressive architectural feat. The sketches also illustrate the design process and evolution that the developers are now implementing in construction.

The striking exoskeleton is one of the many unique features of the 62-storey tower, which takes inspiration from the dynamic movement of Miami. Serving as the outer shell of permanent formwork, close to 5,000 pieces sourced from glass fibre reinforced concrete were imported from Dubai, and are being installed onsite as the project’s structural façade. 

The deep foundations of the building required drilling to record depths of over 170 feet (52 m).

The property is now nearing top off as Hadid’s vision coming closer to life.
