Swiss Architects Herzog & DeMeuron have completed recently this megalomaniac car park in Miami. It is not that often that even Starchitects get the chance to design such a building that has a simple program and an enormous budget, allowing them to sculpt their Architecture in terms of pure aesthetics. This building is really a joy to look at because it becomes more of a Mega-sculpture rather than Architecture. I only wonder how much it would cost to park my car there. But heck that’s Miami!
Check out the great photos of this building by Iwan Baan.

As read in Cyanmag, it seems that Mr Jacques Herzog from Herzog & DeMeuron has fallen in love with the Spanish Canary Islands, after having built a couple buildings in Tenerife for the past years. Therefore he and his family now own this happy place with an ocean view, designed by Herzog himself for his own enjoyment.
Usually when Architects build for themselves, they tend to experiment more and break some rules. This house seems to be interesting, with a clear aesthetic of Southern Spanish Architecture and built with traditional and local materials. Let’s hope that in the future we can, at least see some interior shots of the house.
