Can Bjarke Ingels do no wrong? The "It Boy" has won numerous awards, gotten a big profile in The New Yorker, and wowed spectators around the world with his impeccable design and fun personal touches. (He's also an A+ Awards juror!) Ingels continues to astonish with his latest project, the Marina Lofts in Fort Lauderdale, Florida—a 1,072-unit condo complex with two 36-story buildings that resemble a giant assemblage of LEGOs torn down the center. Aimed to be situated on the town's New River (no, it's not "new," that's just the name), the project is just short $250 million in funding. But for now we can sit and dream.
While details of the waterfront oasis are scarce, the renderings divulge an open-air community area with plenty of green, outdoor space, flexible lounge areas, and modern docks and balconies. The interior of each building boasts countless condos and plenty of retail space with unrivaled waterfront views.
