1111 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach, by Herzog & de Meuron

Parking garages are typically not intended to be beautiful. They provide a specific utility and are purely functional. Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron transformed the garage into a fully open concrete structure that provides a unique space for private residences, restaurants, retail shops, events, and, of course, parking.

The asymmetrical design has art deco and mid-century modern influences, and the entire structure blends beautifully into its downtown Miami surroundings. It’s beautiful from any angle, night or day.
