Eight Thousand Two Hundred Fifteen
is a proposal for an entrance plaza and children’s play area for Zoo Miami and Miami-Dade Art in Public Places. Emerging from the uncontrollability of hydrology and urbanism, the 80,000 ft2 paving system is comprised of thousands of pre-cast and cast-in-place concrete surfaces that mutate from horizontal to vertical at key points, both adaptive and constantly changing. Approximately two hundred of these pavers delaminate and peel off the ground.

Levitating as if by the force of South Florida’s wind or nature’s influence from below, they reveal an unexpected thinness — under which a subterranean landscape exists subjugated by the man-made. Concrete material behaviors are made possible through the use of different concrete technologies, including an extremely high-strength proprietary mixture and standard glass-fibre concrete mixes.
