ArchDaily, an influential architectural online publication and the world's most visited architecture website, has included Miró Rivera Architects' Circuit of the Americas buildings in their list of the top 100 structures in the United States. Miró Rivera designed the signature buildings for Circuit of the Americas, including a 251-foot observation tower and the Austin 360 Amphitheater.
“The main architectural language of the facility evokes the precision, dynamism and performance-driven design of race cars. It is also visually stimulating," reports ArchDaily. "The architects bring their innovative approach to the structural systems; rather than being concealed behind a building’s facade, they are articulated and become significant parts of the design.”
The accolade was covered in the Austin American-Statesman on Friday, June 10. Juan Miró, a principal and founder of Miró Rivera Architects, serves as Associate Dean for Undergraduate Programs at the School of Architecture.
