Million Dollar Jaume Plensa Sculptures at the Residences at Park Grove in Coconut GrovePosted on: November 20th, 2014 by SoFlaNights.com
Rem Koolhaas’ highly anticipated Residences at Park Grove just added more extras to the extraordinary, as developers Terra Group and The Related Group unveiled the secret to the perfect life during a private celebration with Colin Cowie, and first view of Jaume Plensa’s sculpture series “The Three Poets” in its permanent new home in Coconut Grove.
Cowie, known for his lavish international productions and celebrity clientele like Oprah Winfrey and Tom Cruise, is creating the ultimate sensory experience as the official “Lifestyle Curator” for Park Grove residents, with exquisitely good taste and touches, from the reception at valet, to the chilled hand towels and sun products served poolside on silver trays.
“The experience will be in a constant state of change, as the day becomes night, the music that is playing, the volume at which it plays, how the lights are set, and the fragrance in the air—it will all evolve,” said Cowie, as he toasted guests. “These are just a sliver of the nuances that we will orchestrate to create the aura of Park Grove.”
Nearly 1,000 guests enjoyed an elaborate production with lush greenery throughout, true to the Coconut Grove and Park Grove aesthetic—along with posh lounge areas, flowing champagne and even a full coffee bar—peeks into the sublime lifestyle the property will boast.
The Plensa sculpture series has traveled the globe with installations in public spaces before the developers acquired it for Park Grove. Plensa is best known for his public, monumental figurative sculptures that can be seen across the globe from Calgary to Dubai—The Three Poets continues the international artist’s theme and is visible to the public along Bayshore Drive, internally lit and sitting atop 20-foot poles overlooking the bay.
