Hadid died in 2016, at the time when her 62 storey tower was only completed till the eighth floor. Chris Lepine, who took over the project worth $300 million after her death said that they felt a big obligation to make sure of getting the project right as Miami was Hadid’s second home.

'Exoskeleton'

The ‘exoskeleton’ structure, as architects call it, is not only aesthetically pleasing but also is highly functional. It is made of white fibreglass-reinforced concrete. Lepine told international media that the exoskeleton for the architects was a real look at how architecture could be synthesized with structure into an overall very elegant expression. She added that the flexibility and finishing of the novel material used in this "permanent formwork" technique allowed for a fluid look.
