BIG together with West 8, Fentress, JPA and developers Portman CMC proposes Miami Beach Square as the centerpiece of their 52 acre Convention Center.
Miami Beach is a unique city in so many ways. It is one of the youngest cities in America – and perhaps right now one of the most vibrant and dynamic. Its street-scape is characterized by a lively walkable urban fabric with a friendly human scaled environment under the cool shade of tropical trees and art deco canopies – except at the convention center.

Miami Beach suffers from a lack of parking in areas that receive high volumes of visitors. It is a real obstacle for its residents at peak times. The city commissioned several studies for how to improve infrastructure and resident mobility. One of the conclusions was to provide additional parking both strategically and creatively.

Rosé Restaurant offers an upbeat dining experience on the South Beach strip in Miami, Florida.
Rosé was designed using a conceptual framework that acknowledges and indulges in both the glamour and the vibrancy of the 1960′s by paying homage to the lifestyle of the celebrities of the time… As icons Bianca and Mick Jagger, exemplified the glamour of the time, and were observed for their cutting edge style and flavor, designer Emilio Pucci, was at the cutting edge of fashion. Known for his geometric prints in a kaleidoscope of colors, he seemed an appropriate symbol from which to draw the interior architecture of the space.

Calmly perched 60 feet in the air like a floating cloud. Alchemist is a floating glass box inserted into the fifth floor of a parking structure designed by Herzog and de Meuron and Open to the Miami Beach sky. Inside, its reflective materials capture the colors and energy of the surrounding environment and make the space radiate in such a way that it is visible from many vantage points throughout Miami Beach.

The project is a retail interior located at the 1111 Building on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach. The space is defined by two walls which contain the display cases. The walls are inflected to engage the customer from the exterior and to provide an integrated display at the storefront. The kink within the walls increases the display surface area while at the same time making every portion of the store visible to the sales-person. The sales area is defined by stainless steel panels which are perforated in order to reduce the weight of the heavy steel as well as to create a pixilated light pattern.

The form, siting, and distribution of spaces for the Ilona urban dwelling complex in Miami Beach, Florida designed by OPPENHEIM Architecture+Design are derived from a logical analysis of its physical and intangible context. A complex array of interlocking, volumes maximizes light, air, and stringent FAR restrictions. Centrally located on the nondescript site, the building offers views of the passing cruise ships and the surrounding Art Deco Style. The material palette is simple and sincere: white stucco, an aluminum glazing system, perforated aluminum panels, and shell stone details connect the building to the local fabric’s traditions and techniques. Individual 2-story units are expressed as dynamically jutting volumes from the elongated hexagonal plan.
