Espirito Santo Plaza, Miami

This building at 1395 Brickell Avenue (currently known as the Brickell Arch) by Kohn Pedersen Fox is well known for its unique facade. The front of the building has a curved scallop that is vertical, while the flat part of the structure is tilted back slightly. When shot from street level, it looks like the flat part should be vertical, but if you correct for that distortion, the surrounding buildings are horribly crooked. These were shot in May 2011.

The black and white conversion is great! I think the blueish green glass distracts from the building's form. The nighttime lighting also helps accentuate the architecture in a way sunlight might not. Nice.

Thanks! I agree this building looks great at night with all the lines on the facade internally lit.
