Outbreak Artistry In Apartment Designs Compiled; Zaha Hadid’s One Thousand Museum Tower Hits Market For $20.485 M

Apartments are a big challenge to an architect's skill by creating a design of a block of flats, where lives will be lived or families are raised within the limits of space.  This would require some competence to stack up these units, much more worthwhile than turning out another single private house or an iconic museum.

In Britain, more people live in apartments that were previously occupied by fewer people, which could mean a better use of resources and a chance as well for sociability. Incidentally, the country is used to be known as not a nation of apartments, however, it is no longer that way.

The increasing demand for a metropolitan living for 30 years or more in other countries has  prompted a British-born architectural writer Michael Webb to collect examples of architect-designed apartments into a book. Entitled "Building Community," the book is a medium for Webb to spread the joy by showing outbreaks of artistry in California, Brazil, Italy and Singapore among others designed by Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid and Norman Foster, including others who are on the lower ladder of fame. Cascades and plain boxes of terraces are shown, as well as homes that are smothered in greenery, The Guardian reported.

Meanwhile, the latest listing in One Thousand Museum condominium of Zaha Hadid in Miami is now in the market for $20.485 million. This full-floor, five-bedroom apartment covers 10,000 square feet on the whole 53rd floor of the 62-story condominium.

According to reports, the futuristic, building has a total of  83 units ranging from townhouses in the lower levels to a large penthouse at the top. Meantime, One Thousand Museum is the first apartment tower in the Western Hemisphere by Hadid, the legendary Iraqi-British architect, who made the design of the luxury building shortly prior to her death in 2016, Mansion Global reported.
