Miami Design District, Miami, FL
status: completed 2018
in collaboration with SB Architects
This second alley space in the Design District is located between the back of a recently restored warehouse building and a new pedestrian plaza built over multiple levels of underground parking. The project trasnforms the space into a gateway unifying multiple elements including a new pedestrian bridge, a secondary entry to the new plaza, and subgrade parking garage access through a singular patinaed steel armature, its materiality seeks to maintain the grit and crudeness of the alleyway it evolved from. It is a miniature form of architectural infrastructure, combining pedestrian and vehicular circulation into a new public space.
