"I really love Miami, but I don't think the architecture matches the city," Hadid told the Wall Street Journal earlier this year. "It's a bit too commercial."

"We wanted to avoid that generic, modernist typology," she added. "We were interested in the idea of the tall building, and how it lands on the ground, how the structure is manifested."

Zaha Hadid's Architects proposed a spiralling parking garage for Miami in 2011, following in the footsteps of Herzog & de Meuron's multi-storey car park in the city. More recently the firm won a competition to design a metro station in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia – see all architecture by Zaha Hadid Architects.
