Throwback Thursday: The Bacardi Building

The Bacardi Building, 2100 Biscayne Blvd, Miami, FL

The Tower was commissioned by former Bacardi president José “Pepin” Bosch. Designed by Cuban architect Enrique Gutierrez of Saenz, Cancio, Martin and Gutierrez (SACMAG), the Tower comprises a rectangular seven-story structure (measuring 81 by 32 feet), which appears to float weightlessly over a square glass pedestal at the plaza level.

The building has three structural components: four reinforced concrete columns, a set of two flat trusses and two end walls (north and south). The north and south end walls of the Tower contain panels of ribbed pre-cast concrete with a stylized painted tile mural. A contemporary azulejo mural with sinuous designs of tropical plants is painted on white tiles with various tonalities of blue. Bosch hired Brazilian artist Francisco Brennand to design and paint the azulejo tile murals for the north and south facades. More than 28,000 tiles were fired in Brazil and installed as a giant puzzle, each tile hand-numbered by Brennand.
