Following its celebrated topping off earlier this summer, Zaha Hadid's One Thousand Museum in Miami has now all but reached structural completion as crews perform the last round of finishing touches. With cladding and glazing work almost finished, observers of the distinctive 62-storey high-rise can now get a fairly good idea of how the project will appear once it is complete.

Immediately identifiable owing to its curvilinear exoskeleton and unusual profile, One Thousand Museum has brought a major injection of architectural whimsy to Miami's Biscayne Boulevard, the project located just steps from the coastline and just a quick jaunt from downtown.

A legacy project for the late Zaha Hadid, One Thousand Museum bears a strong family resemblance to its international siblings around the globe. Viewed in close-up below, the tower's signature exoskeleton is receiving its final pieces of fit and finish, the feature to eventually form one smooth network along the entirety of the structure,

Set for completion by early 2019, One Thousand Museum will be a standout figure along Miami's world famous oceanfront skyline.
