Photographing Brickell City Centre in Miami, FL

Photographing Brickell City Centre in Miami, FL

Over the last six months I’ve been traveling regularly to Miami, FL, to photograph the new Brickell City Centre development. Spanning over six acres spread across five city blocks, the project is absolutely enormous in scale. With multiple high-rise office buildings, residential buildings, hotels, and an open-air mall with retail and dining space, there is no shortage of amazing subject matter for any architectural photographer. The overall plan and architecture were envisioned by Arquitectonica and interiors were designed by Richardson-Sadeki. The images below are the result of many early mornings, late nights, and humid Miami days creating images of a truly impressive project. As the project continues to be completed, I will be traveling back to photograph additional spaces throughout 2017.

Winding through the development is the BCC Retail space, an open air shopping center covered by an enormous glass and fabric climate ribbon, designed to move air through the building and keep it cool without the use of air conditioning

In addition to commercial and retail space, there are short-stay hotel guest rooms, long-term luxury hotel residences, and apartments and condominiums for purchase or rent.

EAST is the tallest building in the development, soaring over 500 feet. Behind is RISE.
