Eight new starchitect-designed apartment towers in Miami

As the art and design communities prepare to descend on Miami next week, here's a recap of residential skyscrapers designed by some of the world's most famous architects, all of which are either rising or recently completed in the city.

Art fair Art Basel and design show Design Miami both take place in the Florida city every December, and have given the city a cultural gravitas that has led to an influx of new development.

As a result, the last few years have seen the city transform from a retirement resort into a major tourist destination, with attractions ranging from a Sou Fujimoto-designed shopping centre to OMA's nearly complete Faena Forum.

But the majority of new developments in the city are residential, with architects including BIG, Herzog & de Meuron, Renzo Piano and Foster + Partners all working on towers.

We've rounded up eight of the most impressive examples:


The Towers by Foster + Partners

Foster + Partners' plans for a pair of skyscrapers to be constructed in Brickell take advantage of the city's new height limit.
