Zaha Hadid's Elastika

Miami, United States

Architecture and design enthusiasts should make a beeline for the Moore Building. In its atrium architect Zaha Hadid has created a mesmerising installation, connecting different landings to each other. The structural fabric – mimicking the stretchy quality of elastic – was created using geometry software and plays with concepts of time and space in the architecture.

Rent a Jetski

Miami, United States

Tierra Santa Healing House

Don’t come here if your idea of zenning out involves all-white surroundings. Tierra Santa is awash with rainbow-hued rugs, a pom-pom chandelier, bright Juan Gatti artwork and floral-printed pouffes. Located on the third floor of Faena Hotel, the spa boasts one of the largest hammams on the East Coast. Indulge in a full wet-spa experience – think herbal steam room, sauna and ice parlour – and book in for the Hamam Rose Ritual; a unique treatment which involves lying on top of a warm marble slab while a therapist scrubs you down. Post rigorous exfoliation you’ll be covered in soft foam, then a soothing clay and conclude with a massage. Inspired by South American and South Asian healing traditions, Tierra Santa’s treatments are far reaching. Led by two partnering doctors, Tierra Santa also has a preventive medicine program, including testing, exams, detox and digestive health offerings. Weekly spa treatments are far more justifiable when they’re listed under “doctor’s orders”.
