In 1973, Bacardi added the fascinating square building on the west side of the plaza. The square building, raised 47 feet off the ground around a central core, features four massive walls, comprised of chunks of 1 inch thick hammered glass mural tapestries, designed to withstand hurricane force winds. The architect of the building was Ignacio Carrera-Justiz of Coral Gables, FL.   Abstract modern style on all four sides, this unusual building has two floors which cantilever out 24 feet on each side of the central core.
