Dutch hotel group CitizenM has opened a hotel in Downtown Miami in a high-rise building with multiple terraces that was designed to be a "3D art piece".

For the 277-foot-tall (84-metre-tall) building in Downtown Miami, Amsterdam-based architecture studio Concrete worked with Gensler as the local architect to carry out the design of the tower.

The envelope features large swathes of concrete and glass organised in a series of discreet boxes that break up the massing of the facade.

Since construction, much of the facade has been dedicated to a massive mural by American artist Jen Stark.

The architecture is considered as a 3D art piece with large colorful murals by Jenny Stark on every side of the building; by this the building is recognizable among all the other buildings," said Concrete.

By using twisted boxes, you can experience the art from all sides."
