Inside Zaha Hadid's One Thousand Museum Tower: Trippy Ceiling Art

From the outside, Zaha Hadid's One Thousand Museum condo may look like a sleek, futuristic tower with a Spider-Man-esque exoskeleton.

On the inside, however, the design is less tough insect, and more swirly Alice in Wonderland.

This weekend, New Times received renderings previewing the inside of Hadid's downtown project, featuring the starchitect's own art installation on the ceilings.

These images preview the building's sales center, located next door to the One Thousand Museum site. The center will house built-out kitchens and other aspects of the condos to come.

The One Thousand Museum team describes the design as "[Hadid's] signature curved-line, futuristic look." We're just calling it trippy, man.

To match the futuristic silver, swanky furnishings, the center will also feature a scale hologram of the tower, and it's own signature fragrance pumping through the air at all times. It's like if James Bond set up his headquarters at the Miramar Playa ... in the year 2150.

This is, of course, just the sales center -- the public face of what will eventually be a collection of private condos. But the announcement promises that a similar aesthetic "will be brought to the building and [is] set to alter the Miami skyline significantly."

Looks like Zaha's taking Miami down the rabbit hole.
