The Architecture God Has Spoken: COR is CUTE!

It's not everyday I see a building I want to stick my finger into and say "Cootchie-cootchie-cootchie-coo" to, but I must say Chad Oppenheim's design for a new building called COR in Miami's Design District is one of them. In fact, it may be the only one. Here's a building that doesn't have to be fun like that Disney stuff up in Orlando, but it is. Plus, it will be one of Miami's first green buildings. The mixed-use commercial/residential tower will get power from wind turbines and photovoltaic panels. Hot water will come from solar panels. Oppenheim is one of a slew of exciting architects who call Miami home. Although this city may never see the tallest skyscrapers on the planet, it may come to be known as the host city of some of the world's best architectural firms and some of the most important paradigm expanding buildings of this new era. You can see more of Mr. Oppenheim's work here. AG for MVB.
