Miami Waterfront

Miami, Florida


Drawing on the geologic, as well as the constructed history of the Miami waterfront, the project proposes a new series of public spaces- from streetscapes to public plazas and finally grand vistas that connect and orient the visitor to the city.

The development is experienced on three levels, each with its own material character and use. The forms of the buildings recall the thrust of the coastal ridge and the sedimentary and tectonic forces that formed Miami limestone. The lower levels of this complex will eventually become part of the Atlantic Ocean.
